I discovered IDEA last week. After two days working with it I love it a lot!
There are probably just a couple of things I used to have in SlickEdit which I miss in IDEA.
One of them is so called "package view", i.e. you see all project's sources in
packages tree. It's somewhat similar to what you see in Sourcepath view, but it shows
only project's files and it has only one root (all files are combined by their package).
I need this because for my projects I often have source files distributed among several
paths. I rememeber pretty good which package some particular class belongs to, but I don't
remember it's location on file system. So it seems very natural for me to see all my files
under their packages rather than under their paths.
I could not find this feature in IDEA, so I decided to write a plugin for this.
So the question: is it possible to add an additional view to those Project/Sourcepath/Classpath
using openapi? If possible then please how? And please tell me of any possible troubles
I may get into with this plugin.
If this is possible without any plugin please let me know as well :)) It sure will save my time.
