To get started with Ctrlflow Code Search Professional, you will need to create a search index. Once you start code search, Code Search will keep the index up-to-date, which allows it to find code snippets almost instantly. Like the Eclipse Java Development Tools, Code Search can search for occurrences of types, fields, and methods (only [...]Ctrlflow
The Ctrlflow blog covers insights about Automated Error Reporting & Code Search for Java in Eclipse, including exception handling, code snippets, bug tracking, etc.
Code snippets are one of the best tools when learning a new API. In particular when the API’s documentation is lacking (which it all too often is), access to example code is key to getting up to speed. This is where Ctrlflow Code Search Professional’s catalogs come in: They give you instant access to valuable code snippets for many [...]Ctrlflow
As highlighted in an earlier post, Ctrlflow Code Search Professional allows you to search for code snippets. Hence, it can immediately answer complex questions like “How to use a GridDataFactory:” At a single glance, the above search results give you a lot of information: There are two methods fillDefaults() and swtDefaults(), which [...]Ctrlflow

However, Java developers often are interested in the answer to a different (and much harder) question: How can I accomplish something? Here, JDT’s traditional [...]Ctrlflow
Java Developers using the Eclipse IDE have become accustomed to numerous keyboard shortcuts, context menus, or even complex dialogs to initiate searches for code. But this makes the act of searching a conscious (and often distracting) choice, in particular when you have to wait several seconds for your search results. Ctrlflow Code [...]Ctrlflow
With Eclipse Neon, the latest version of the Eclipse IDE (to be available for public download very soon, on 22 June 2016), search has seen small, but useful improvements. Since milestone 2, the Eclipse IDE allows your full-text searches to cover binary files as well. You can thus quickly search for a magic byte sequence. Unfortunately, [...]Ctrlflow
The Eclipse IDE makes searching for code very easy, both with built-in functionality and third-party plugins such as Ctrlflow Code Search Professional. This is even more true when using the various shortcuts, which this post will introduce you to. When searching for code, developers typically want to either find locations where, e.g., a [...]Ctrlflow
