Description Martin Roskanin 2005-05-17 14:51:50 UTC
FolderLookup work recursively now.
If there is an instance file in folder structure like:
then FolderLookup finds this file also using FolderLookup over parent "AAA"
folder FO.

There should be possibility to specify (or enable/disable) the recursivity
behaviour of FolderLookup.

I am attaching test, that consider a factory:
public static Lookup folderLookup (FileObject fo, boolean recursive);
for obtaining recursivity dependent lookup

Comment 2 Jaroslav Tulach 2005-05-18 08:43:21 UTC
Radek, this seems like another request for Lookup for a folder in system 
I think adding FolderLookup.folderLookup static factory method is good idea, 
there should be no problems implementing it, as for non-recursive folder one 
only needs subclass FolderLookup and override acceptFolder & acceptContainer 
to return null. 
I would like to see the factory method in org.openide.options package. For 
Settings.contextLookup(String name), but I am affraid we cannot implement it 
right now, as there would be unwanted behaviour of autosave, which we probably 
do not want to preserve in future.

Reassigning to new module owner jskrivanek.
Comment 4 Jaroslav Tulach 2008-11-21 23:09:44 UTC
In case somebody needs this, it is enough to subclass FolderLookup and override acceptFolder method. Anyway the whole 
FolderLookup is deprecated, people are supposed to use Lookups.forPath instead.

For reference, working patch was in issue #169338 but was rejected during API review.
