Description ulfzibis 2010-05-07 18:13:18 UTC
[ BUILD # : 201005050200 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.* ]

Find usages should work for the whole classpath in free form project, even if
not displayed in the project browsers sources tree.

Try sample OpenJDK project.


But see here:

Sorry, but the request is not clear to me. Could you please describe in detail what you expect? If you mean that the refactoring should run also on excluded classes, then I believe that would against the very purpose of the exclusion patterns.

Have a look at Bug #55291.
There are some examples.

Not quite sure if that was the original complaint, but need to take it as such given there is no other comment.

I would say, the complaint is the same, but the environment is different.

In this bug the JDK itself is the project's subject, so I would say the justification to include the entire JDK sources by FU is even stronger than for a project just using the JDK, like described in bug 55291.

But also here I would prefer a new UI - a check-box to say whether you want to search in non-project files or not, but set the the default to search on ALL sources here.
In my understanding, in the sample OpenJDK projects, the whole sources are to be seen as project files, but only filtered for better usability from the Project window and excluding the big work from ant build target.
