Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0-ea
Runtime = OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 25.0-b15
Both Fix all imports and the Add import fix should not be able to handle static imports:
Passing to Dusan to see if the code completion should do similar lookup into the index.
Code completion should be able to add static imports:
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201304131047* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
Code completion for static members enhanced with ability to prefer enclosing class imports over static imports.
