Description _ gsporar 2007-03-17 03:32:36 UTC
One of the reasons some folks feel that we do *not* need is because you can see the
information about a .java file in the Navigator.  As pointed out in the
description of, that does
not work for some people.

But if the Navigator is the only place we can get access to this information
about a .java file, then the context menus should be the same as what we used to
have when the Projects window supported expansion of a .java file.

For example, in Milestone 7, a class's method has these entries on its context
menu in the Navigator window:

Go to Source
Sort by Name
Sort by Source
Filters >

In NetBeans 5.5, a class's method has these entries in its context menu in the
Projects window: 

Find Usages
Refactor >
Tools >

So as it stands right now, we're missing some context menu entries.  What I
really want is for to get
fixed.  But if that's not possible it would be great to at least have the
context menu entries available in the Navigator.
