Description hanasaki 2012-12-21 23:05:39 UTC
This enhancement requested to address the GUI ambiguity of the following situation.  Search for an artifactId known to be in a pom.xml as a dependency or parent id.  The results shown in the GUI only show "pom.xml" on many lines.  One line per pom.xml Expanding the details for any single found item shows the line and column number only.  Thus there is no way to differentiate the results visually.  If the pom.xml lines in the results were to show the <name>...</name> information the same as the project file list, it would be beneficial and consistent.  This is just one specific scenario of the more general case; "cannot visually differentiate search results showing multiple file matches"   For non-maven projects (ex: ant and others) the project name could be deduced in a project type specific manner.
