Description everflux 2013-05-22 15:40:11 UTC
I would really like to not have to get the camel case exactly correct when I want to open a class.


CustomeWebApplicationInitializerImpl can currently only be accessed with CWA
I would like to see it with
CII (Custom...InitializerImpl) and
WAI (...WebApplicationInitializer...) and
CAI (Custom...ApplicationInitializer...)

If people don't like it (I can't imagine why...) it could be made configurable and/or only be triggered in case the regular exact camel case does not match for types in the currently open projects (not taking the JDK / library classes into account).

Will require configuration in options as described because it may significantly increate the amount of found types.
Comment 2 everflux 2013-05-23 12:02:17 UTC
Using partials should allow to restrict the results nicely.

For example
CWImpl (Custom...ApplicationInitializer...Impl)

This would help tremendously for tests as well:

MCTest (MasterCalculation...{whatever|foo|bar}...Test)

and voila I see all test classes for my business layer.

Perhaps "simply" adding wildcards could help here:

MCTest -> *M*C*Test*
