Java support for compiled classes
« on: March 05, 2018, 04:54:54 pm »
My Java improvement series.

SE should logically extend its tagging database with information found the jar files of the project's class path (gradle/maven addressed elsewhere).  This is a logical extension only, no data gets transferred into the tagging database.  In addition, SE should include a byte-code decompiler.

Furnished with that new information, SE will be able to
  • Resolve import statements for classes
  • Resolve import statements for annotations
  • Provide auto-complete support for classes, functions and types found in the classpath jars
  • Provide meta information such as deprecation flags
  • Step into compiled code while debugging, provide synthesized method signatures and local variables
