IndexingAPI Indexing API allows all clients to request (re)indexing of a certain index, or certain root of project sources. Indexing SPIs allow module owners to implement indexer for a particular feature or language.
This API was historically part of Parsing API, but was separated into its own module.
Added a support for custom camel case separators and custom camel case parts into
Historically the module offered both APIs for Parsing (invoking parser, implementing parser) and Indexing (refresh index, index SPIs). Those APIs are typically used by unrelated pieces of code, possibly with the exception of "refresh" actions.
The indexing now resides separately in its
parsing.indexing module. Binary compatibility
is kept by using module-auto-deps.xml.
Please also refer to the API Changes document of the parental module.
The sources for the module are in the NetBeans Mercurial repositories.
