Description SirIntellegence 2017-08-15 18:01:01 UTC
I'm not sure how to best describe this... I have multiple copies of my company's code in a directory, such that I have something like this:
CodeRoot1 (hg share CodeRoot CodeRoot1)
CodeRoot2 (hg share CodeRoot CodeRoot2)
CodeRoot3 (hg share CodeRoot CodeRoot3)
All of those folders are the copies of the same repo. I have multiple copies so I can suspend work on one bug to work on another without having to commit incomplete code. I just change the project group to the one I need to work on.
When setup like this with a large code base, Netbeans tends to "forget" classes, such that it returns no results of classes within my projects and doesn't attempt to re-index them since they are supposedly indexed? When this happens, I have to clear the Netbeans cache to get it to work properly again. Is this fixable? I the programming language I am using is Java.
