Description pekarna 2014-09-03 20:20:06 UTC
Often when I search for usages, supertypes or subtypes, or just search for the type itself in the search bar, I don't find the type.

That's because I am working on a larger Maven project with submodules, which are used across the project through CDI.

With larger Java EE 6 applications, which are often mainly tied using CDI, this becomes a problem - NetBeans users are not able to find the implementations of the interface being injected, and even if looking directly for a type (e.g. showing in a stacktrace), they get 0 results.

I think that NetBeans should, at least optionally, index all (Maven?) submodules and search in their types too.

This is quite important. It always forces me to go to console and use `git grep`.

Thanks for considering.
