Hi, I am trying to develop a plugin for eclipse and I am trying to use SearchEngine class to find all classes in a project that extend a given class..

I am using this pattern:

SearchPattern.createPattern("package.of.the.class.Class", IJavaSearchConstants.TYPE, IJavaSearchConstants.IMPLEMENTORS, SearchPattern.R_EXACT_MATCH);

Shouldn't this work?
It is only returning classes that extend that class directly, not classes that extend a subclass of that one. How can I have it to do that?

Thank you.

Look at ITypeHierarchy.

Thank you, I was able to do it using that interface and searching for each of the subclasses.
