Searching for and analyzing
code snippets faster
Discover the advantages of Code Search Professional for your
Java software development process.
Perform targeted searches
Using the context menu, Codesearch allows you to perform targeted searches. Right click within the Java Editor, the Package Explorer, or the Project Explorer to view a selection of context-dependent searches.
Linked mode search
Codesearch's Linked Mode automatically searches while you code. Just start typing in your Java Editor to get lightning fast, context-sensitive search results.
Full text search
Perform full text searches by using the Codesearch View's search bar. Codesearch will perform a comprehensive search through all expressions, declarations, argument lists, and string literals (see next page).
String literal search
Full Text Search also provides a String Literal search. You can use three special characters to help you narrow your search: * acts as a wildcard, and ^ or $ allow you to anchor your search to the start or end of the literal.
Don't get lost in large codebases. Codesearch’s grouping options allow you to quickly organize your results. Using its filtering options you can further target your search to focus on the results you really need.
Codesearch’s smart aggregation feature displays only the essence of each result. This allows you to quickly identify common coding patterns.
Access results outside of your workspace
Codesearch catalogs allow you to access results outside of your workspace. Just visit the Ctrlflow > Codesearch > Catalogs preferences and pick the catalogs you need.
