I want my module to disable some of the modules that would normally be enabled. Possible?

If you're building a complete application (for example, selecting the Standalone Application option for a module suite) just use the Libraries panel of the suite's Properties dialog to exclude modules you don't need from clusters you are otherwise including.

If you have a single module which you want to install in an existing application (e.g. the NetBeans IDE) and disable another module, it's a little trickier. You can do it in your ModuleInstall.restored() method:

Modules API - List of Modules

Sample: of the Java CVS Module

You can also go through the Auto Update Services API: Geertjan shows how

Applies to: NetBeans 6.5 and later
