Description Simon Harris 2001-03-06 22:19:04 UTC
It would be nice to have a find and replace (in addition to the simple find) 
mechanism from the filesystem explorer. An example of its intended use: I was 
recently asked to remove around some unecessary import statements from around 
175 files. I could find the files using the filesystem explorer. However I was 
forced to open each one and perform another find|replace 175 times!

Kawa 4.x has this feature and I sorely missed it when moving to netbeans (which 
btw is far superior in almost every other aspect).

Editor module already implement 'Find and Replace' functionality,
which should be also used with Find and Replace on filesystem. Editor
module should just go through filesystem and apply its F&R action on
all FileObjects.

Reasonable connection between Editor and Utilities modules could be
Find and Replace action on any DataObject (probably Tools action)
provided by Editor module. User will specify files ('Find ...' -
utilities) in which want to apply F&R action ('Tools | Find and
Replace' - editor).

Changing subcomponent to "search"

We are quite often confronted with replacing text in multiple files,
not only in java source code, when renaming objects, which i hope will
be available through the long awaited upcoming refactoring tool. But
also when replacing licence information or text/code in jsp or html or
configuration files. 

At the moment i always need to use tools like UltraEdit, which is
quite uncomfortable.

Is there any support planned for this feature in the upcoming 4.0 version?

Issue #35555 contains useful comments from Tim Boudreau - read them
before implementing this feature.
Comment 12 Marian Petras 2005-05-03 14:23:31 UTC
This is a duplicate of issue #18237. Bug report #18237 contains much more
comments and votes so I decided to keep it open instead of this one.
