In working with huge projects there are many instances the developers fall into situations where they need to find Java EE artifacts and relevant documents to the project.

Generally a particular artifact is remembered by a part of the content or some other special attribute such as the file name. At such instances developers usually tend to locate the file by performing a file search available in the operating system or going for a full text search.
