Evaluating IDEA: Finding class in classpath ?

Hi.

I have been using JBuilder all my life, but I'm currently evaluating IDEA. I found almost all htings I had in JB, except I cannot find "Finding class in classpath" feature. Does it exist?
Let's say you have a big project, with lot of libraries included, and you want IDEA to show you in what jars and package some class under specified name resides? Is there somthing similar in IDEA ?
Great thing in JBuilder is that you don't have to remeber complete name at all, you just start typing beggining of name, and it automaticaly shows all possible solutions ...

All your life? How sorry I am for you :)

Also, are you only 8-9 years old? I don't think jbuilder is older than
that :)

"Finding class in classpath"


Go To -> Class (Control-N)

Maybe followed by

View -> Select In... (Alt-F1)

You know what I mean ...

Yeah, it's satisfying, although I'm confused why it goes to the generated source of found class, and not real source, since I specified source directory of that library during library registration?

This must be some configuration issue, "typically" it goes to the source
files.
