I'm evaluating IDEA 7.x as a replacement for Eclipse Europa and was surprised at the behaviour of code completion which is mapped to the same keystroke in both IDE's. I am running both of them at the same time where the IDEA project has been set up to be linked with the Eclipse workspace. To prove that both are running on the same compiled code, I can successfully run all test suites with exactly the same results.
In Eclipse, ctrl-space and typing the first characters gives me the class suggestions that I expect, but IDEA just gives up with "no suggestions" even though I am sure this is a class in the project classpath and is compiled; a real surprise. Am I doing something wrong in IDEA?
See my attached screenshots.
