Description Ivana Ladenbergerova 2001-08-16 16:28:20 UTC
I'm requesting for a feature where the hierarchy
of a class or interface can be displayed in a tree.

An entry like "Show Hierarchy" in the context-menu
for a class/interface that opens a browser like
the object-browser which displays a tree like
the following example:
 +- com.xycompany.service.ServiceProvider (-> implements
     +- com.xycompany.print.PrintServiceMgr

I've seen this very useful feature in Visual Age
for Java.

Not sure if need to be done for NetBeans 3.3 release, but it is surely
planned after MDR is available. Displaying hierarchy of superclasses
up to j.l.Object is actually OK with MDR whatsoever, the other
direction is a way harder.
Comment 2 Svata Dedic 2001-11-19 12:26:32 UTC
Only one direction is possible right now. Full inheritance browser 
(including subclasses) is blocked by MDR absence.
