Re: [cdt-dev] The old binary projects question again

What do you mean by random browsing?  You can expand the jar files and 
open the class files and if source is attached (and most do) you get the 
source files.  And the Java search went and looked in the jars as well to 
find things declared and referenced in there.

Random browsing of the *.jar ?

I do not have any real issue one way or the other.
