File search component


The goal of this subproject to provide a new, better user friendly implementation of the file search functionality.

A dialog should be created with the following features:

  • Textbox to specify the root directory for search

  • Textbox to specify the file pattern to search for

  • Content textbox

  • Checkbox to switch between regular expression search and traditional search

  • Additional GUI elements for additional functionality (optional)

Functional requirements:

  • Progress status information should be displayed. Ie.: progressbar

  • The user should be able to pause/resume and stop search

  • User should be able to save the search result. This can be done by asking for a file name or simply providing copy/paste style saving.

  • Performance is a major requirement

Implementation details

  • Code exists for querying, reading files

  • Reusable, UI independent code should be provided for search

  • Junit test should be provided for many test cases

  • Coding should follow SUN's coding convention

  • Javadoc should be provided for classes and for major methods

  • Usage of design patterns are preferred
