Eclipse WTP – progress

At the beginning of this week, I asked Darin Wright a question about how to locate the package that contains source lookup, and he replied to my email and posted a comment on the bug page.

I’m not familiar with the source locator used in web app’s. However, the issue is that a type with the same name (com.whatever.MyClass) exists in more than one application and the source locator finds one of them first. If there’s a way for the source locator to understand the context in which the source lookup is being performed (which module/web app?), then the source locator should be able to prioritize/order its search to look in the right place first.

This gave me a good insight of the cause of the bug.

I will try to figure out the source.
