Subject [jira] [Created] (NETBEANS-1102) Improve searching for jigsaw modules
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2018 09:35:00 GMT
John Kostaras created NETBEANS-1102:

             Summary: Improve searching for jigsaw modules 
                 Key: NETBEANS-1102
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: java - Project
    Affects Versions: 9.0
         Environment: JDK 9 and later
            Reporter: John Kostaras
             Fix For: Next
         Attachments: NB-ModuleDependencies.png

When developing jigsaw modularised Java applications, it is not easy to search in the 90+
modules of the JDK for the class that the user wishes to use. Either while the user types
an import in the java editor and then clicking on the error bulb or by right-clicking on *Libraries*
in the _Project Explorer,_ a dialog box could be displayed (similar to when adding a dependency
in a NetBeans RCP module – see attachment) that displays the available jdk modules for the
user to choose from. A search filter would filter this list to what the user types in it.
