One of the most powerful search functions I love is in NetBeans IDE. I never find it in
Eclipse (by default).
My use case is to search a text under 4.5 GB files. For that I use the NetBeans IDE Favorites window.
Follow the below steps to achieve quick search and edit in NetBeans IDE.
- Add the directory under Favorites, then search i.e. (Ctrl+F). Optionally you can add filters (*.java,*.html,*.js, *.json, etc.)
- This search will display the results synchronously, you can stop any time
