The Java Completer should offer static methods for completion as if they were local. This already happens for already imported static methods,
but it should also do this for static methods from user-specified classes, potentially with NetBeans shipping a good stock supply as default. This requires a
UI similar to the "Java Code Completer Excluder" that I added as part of issue 125060.
There are several dupes of this RFE/bug report. Mainly:
It would be great to see this in 6.7
@igorminar they are related, but not dupes. The first is about the hints system and the second for "Fix Imports". This RFE is for the code completer.
Still valid in 7.1?
Unfortunately, it is still valid. The main blocker is a fact that only those class members (methods, fields) that come from sources are currently indexed (so methods like Math.abs(...) that come from rt.jar are not indexed yet).
