Proposal for Tool to Trace Method Call Chains

Currently, there is no way in Netbeans to select a method and find all calls to that
method or the chains of all calls to that method.  This is useful in day-to-day code
maintenance, especially when managing a large code base or when maintaining code
written by someone else.  Commonly performed tasks where this would be valuable
include:

I am working on a large project and have taken over code from other developers
and I really need tools that are more efficient at maintaining the code than just
searching for problem areas with the editor.
