    Hi,

    I think this feature is very helpful:

    So 🙂 I would like to request this feature also in MyEclipse.

    An Indexer for all workspace files and contents, so we kann search much more faster in sources.

    Thank you

    pan4o,

    Thank you for asking. Just so we understand why you need this specifically, can you tell me what your use case is? Are you searching for text in all types of files across your workspace or are you searching only Java source code?

    If it’s the latter, I wanted to point out that the Java specific search wizard is quite powerful, fast and would use the internal JDT index, which will work anytime you need to search for Java constructs. Of course, I do understand that sometimes, even in source, all you need is a simple text search.

    There are several Eclipse plugins that you can use to add an indexed based search to MyEclipse: Instasearch: https://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/instasearch is one example, but you can find more listed in the Eclipse marketplace.

    Hi,

    yes I want to search in all files in my workspace, aka full text search.
    Yes I know these plugins .. but I want something stable – like IntelliJ.

    Thats why I am making a feature request 🙂
