Description markiewb 2012-05-12 00:28:07 UTC
In the new Eclipse JDT "subword completion" is supported. Can this be implemented in NetBeans too?

More details (with screenshots) at http://blog.deepakazad.com/2012/05/subwords-completion.html

Proposed patch for subword completion

@NetBeans-Dev: Please have a look at the patch and discuss. I know that this is an enhancement and currently there is feature freeze. Maybe a feature for the next release? 

Examples for supported completion ('|' shows the carret):

org.openide.util.Utilities.acoh| -> actionsForPath
java.lang.System.out| -> setOut
argex| -> IllegalArgumentException
java.util.Collections.que| -> asLifoQueue

TODO: 
* add option in options dialog (or commandline switch/feature toggle)
* improve performance (regex is compiled every time)
* 'better' matching results must be at the top of result list (i guess this is  out of scope of this issue)

Proposed patch for subword completion v2

Improved patch. Now supports uppercase characters as landmarks.

For example: 'java.lang.System.sIn|' -> 'setIn' will be completed
