The Class Hunter Intellij plugin aims to provide a way for Intellij
programmers to locate missing Java classes in folders or Jar files required by projects.
Class Hunter is designed to start with a set of locations where Java projects and applications
are commonly stored (i.e. C:\java) and search for classes.
A search can be initiated directly from source editing when a class in a source file remains red
without an import prompt, or from opening Class Hunter from a menu and pasting a class from a
ClassNotFoundException after a runtime failure. Class Hunter integrates with IDEA in an
unintrusive way by adding a "Find Class" option to the editing context menu and the search menu.
Particular features of Class Hunter include:
- Search for a class not found in source code during editing from the context menu
- Search for classes based on a string search from the search menu
- Finds multiple matches in Jar files
- Automatically add found Jar files to the module
String searches in Class Hunter also allow the programmer to find potentially useful classes
by only specifying part of a class name, i.e., the search string "util" would find classes such
as StringUtils and XmlUtil.
Comments, suggestions, bugs etc. are very welcome.
