Hey, thanks for the tip. I guess that will have to do for now. But, I sure would like the snappier response of a "go to class". But, again, thanks. I have to make sure that other IDEA and Eclipse users aren't looking over my shoulder when I pull of that search. hah!

Snappier response?

Have you tried using -J-Xmx and -J-Xms switches when starting Netbeans? After I added some memory using those, my Netbeans just flies.. including Go to Class, yes.

More info here on boosting NB performance:

Am I Netbeans fan or what? ;) I'll have to ask Roumen to send me one of those Netbeans T-shirts ;)

"Snappier response?"

No, that isn't what I meant. I meant that when you use the "go to class" you get a live search which is updated while you type. The option I was given was referring to a popup dialog, where I had to change tabs, type in my criteria, click search and wait.

I have no problem with NetBean's snappiness.
