Description jhoffman 2000-11-08 01:11:40 UTC
More than half of the users in our FFJ user test noticed that there is no
mechanism to add import statements to the code other than typing them
directly in the editor *after* you have gone through the new class wizard.

If you could specify the java packages for your import statements near the
beginning of the wizard, then perhaps you could browse for class names
in other areas of the wizard.  This way you don't have to remember lots of
class names and you can complete your class entirely within the class wizard.

There is also no mechanism to add an import statement to a java file from the
explorer window.  It should use a similar interaction as adding a method or
a field.

Yes, it is already being worked on. We are preparing an "Import management tool"
for the next release that would help users import identifiers widely used in
their sources. I was thinking about adding a page in the java wizard, too.
