Change destination folder of JAR files in Netbeans 7

I'm working on a multiproject solution for a client and we're trying to have all our builds automatically go into a predetermined BIN folder. All the C++ projects were easily enough moved over but the Java side has proven not so easily configured. When I go to the project's properties and go to Build->Packaging the "JAR File:" text box shows a read-only text-box pointing to "dist/App.jar" (which I would like to change to "../../../bin/App.jar". Any thoughts on how to do this?

You can change the dist-folder by editing the dist.dir key in the project.propertiesfile which is located in the nbproject directory from

dist.dir=dist

to

dist.dir=../../../bin

In my case the key is in line 24. The name of the jar-file itself is determined by the dist.jar key, if you would need to rename the file aswell.
