1. create a maven project with an external dependency 2. right click on Dependencies, download sources 3. Open a .class file in a jar of a dependency, so you can see the source code along with syntax highlighting, variable occurrences etc. You can also search for a string in file. It behavior is almost like the regular source code file. 4. You cannot search for a string in all .class files of the current dependency, even though you can search in every single file Expected behavior would be to click on dependency jar and be able to find all occurrences of the search string in all .class files

It's possible to decompile an individual file. It is not really efficent to pretend the file has different contents for Find operation - and decompile them on the fly.
