Talk:JDT Core Programmer Guide/MetaIndex

Where you discuss "capturing of package names are done in BinaryIndexes" you list a few locations, where type references are found, but the implementation doesn't actually care. It simply reads all entries of the constant pool. Otherwise we would be missing a lot of type references! I believe the implementation more than the description :) or am I missing anything? --Stephan.herrmann.berlin.de (talk) 16:15, 29 March 2021 (EDT)

"Extract package names from all none * imports" - why treat wildcard imports differently? They, too, contain the full package part of each qualified name. --Stephan.herrmann.berlin.de (talk) 16:18, 29 March 2021 (EDT)

"There are discussions at bug 570078 if we should extend this MetaIndex for other kind of search patterns as well." - I was very naively assuming that the same mechanism would transparently apply for all index searches involving type names. Why / how / where would different search patterns require different approaches? --Stephan.herrmann.berlin.de (talk) 16:24, 29 March 2021 (EDT)
