Description _ pkuzel 2004-04-29 15:33:52 UTC
I need API to get all opened projects. Replacement
to temporary workaround:

        // XXX there is planed better api to get
all opened projects
        GlobalPathRegistry registry =
        Set sourceRoots =
        Iterator it = sourceRoots.iterator();
        while (it.hasNext()) {
            ClassPath next = (ClassPath);
            FileObject[] roots = next.getRoots();
            if (roots == null || roots.length ==
0) continue;
            Project project =
            if (projects.contains(project)) continue;

            Sources sources = (Sources)

I expect ProjectManager's method:

  public Project[] getAllOpened();
Comment 1 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-05 10:19:02 UTC
Jesse do you really want me to do it? The last decision was to avoid it.
I'm confused
Comment 2 _ pkuzel 2004-05-05 14:06:02 UTC
Well, last decision was to add it. With Javadoc describing valid vs.
invalid usages.
Comment 3 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-05 15:58:16 UTC
Not the very last one. Then we found that for debuuger are MainProject
and Project sensitive actions enough. Form the bug I can't tell
whether it would help you as well. Would you be so kind and specify
why you are requesting it.
Comment 4 _ pkuzel 2004-05-05 16:12:35 UTC
I need to list all opened projects. I have window with global action:
find TODOs in selected folder. The globalness is mapped to all opened
projects. User can choose arbitrary folder from any opened project.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2004-05-05 19:24:56 UTC
I believe this use case does require such an API.
Comment 6 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-10 16:14:31 UTC
Finally decided to publish the list of open project. Thus making it a
defect and setting the TM to promo-d
Comment 7 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-12 17:18:48 UTC
The API is in, including tests. See
Comment 8 _ pkuzel 2004-05-13 13:57:54 UTC

Support for PCLs is an extra (from my side).
Comment 9 _ pkuzel 2004-05-13 14:11:37 UTC
Not enlisted in Public-Packages attribute.
Comment 10 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-13 15:27:46 UTC
Oops. Sorry.
