How to avoid search hits in JAR files? [message #247689] Fri, 07 September 2007 23:36 Go to next message

A framework I am developing deploys JARs which end up in dozens of
projects in my workspace,
and hence any searches I make have copious duplicate hits, for each copy
of the JARs. How
can I filter searches to exclude these? None of the supplied filter
options seem slightly
relevant, which all relate to the *code context* of the hit, rather than
its packaging.

Cheers,
Antranig.

You can define a Working Set (or Working Sets) that only includes the
source that you want to search, then limit the scope of the search to
the Working Set(s).

Hope this helps,
Eric

Cheers Eric -
Yes, I had considered working sets. The issue is, these JARs are
dependencies of projects that I *do* want searched, that is, I would
like the code directly within the projects to be marked as a
search target, but would like to exclude JARs within the same
project (really, a setting to exclude JARs from search across the entire
workspace would be ideal). Unless I use any option other than "group by
project", it is now extremely difficult to sort out the hits I need amongst
the dozens of "decoys".

Antranig.

A Working Set should still work or you - just include the source
directories and exclude the JARs.

Ah - thanks Eric - I hadn't realised this was possible. It will be somewhat
tedious to draw up the set (for a workspace of >100 projects) without a
"select resources by type" option but I think it will save a good amount
of time in the long run.

Thanks for this suggestion,
Antranig.

Simply uncheck 'Application libraries' on th Java Search page of the
search dialog (Ctrl+H).
