Description Jesse Glick 2012-04-12 03:25:49 UTC
For the purpose of fixing Java refactoring-related code to treat reduced tree mode naturally, it would be helpful to have an explicit representation of a segment of a tree:


DataFolder adequately represents src/org/here/ and all its recursive contents; NonRecursiveFolder represents src/org/here/* (i.e. just To treat the subtree of src/, the DataFolder works for most purposes (i.e. searching, or adding things) but fails for a few purposes (moving or deleting).

Could perhaps have something like the following in a Node.lookup:

public interface FolderSegment {
  FileObject top();
  FileObject bottom();

with the invariants

top==bottom || FileUtil.isParentOf(top, bottom)
∀ FileObject f: FileUtil.isParentOf(top, f) → f==bottom || FileUtil.isParentOf(f, bottom) || FileUtil.isParentOf(bottom, f)

Thus top=src/org/ and bottom=src/org/here/ is a legitimate segment, but top=src/org/ and bottom=src/org/here/api/ is not (pick f=src/org/here/ for example).

More descriptive terminology welcome; I am not sure if the above concept has a standard name.

The node would typically include bottom (and/or DataFolder.findFolder(bottom)) in its lookup as well, for callers which do not care about the top and need not use this API.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,

This still needs a proper fix.
