When searching for usages of final variables, it would be great if there was
a checkbox like "search explicit value usage".
Consider the following case:
A constant string FOO equals to "foo" is used as a comparison value for an
http servlet request parameter value.
The servlet works correctly. Then the programmer decides to modify the value
to "oof", and suddenly the application breaks, because another programmer
(fired right after this discovery :)) used the string "foo" directly and
not through the constant.
The suggested feature would bring the floating "foo" to display without the
need to do more than 1 search.
Does this make sense to anyone else?
