InstaSearch is one of the coolest light - weight eclipse plugin that based on Apache Lucene search engine.
- Instantly shows search results
- Shows suggestions using auto-completion and preview using relevant lines
- Opens and highlights matches in files
- Searches jar source attachments
- Install this plugin and click on InstaSearch menu item from Search toolbar menu.
- Start typing your word to search.(viz preview below)
- It doesn't support regex pattern(By the time I write this).
