Hi Java hackers,
I was contemplating how Java works a little bit based on email on
the jdee mailing list. I had in the passed suspected we needed a
fancy beanshell using back end to do system database queries for
semantic. I suspect it may be possible to avoid that.
The most used semanticdb based queries are finding tags by name,
name-regexp, and for completion. If you know a chunk of the name,
then based on your local context, you could directly pick out which
files from the database it came from. Most other searches such as the
`deep' searches may not be strictly necessary since that is usually
for code browsing where the system database.
The latest semanticdb searching has overload methods that choose
which databases to search based on file by looking at import
statements. It could be possible to combine the input argument for
the search with that routine to provide a list of file names.
Any other thoughts?
