    Default possible to search files in project for use of a certain method?

    i was wondering if there is some kind of search function in eclipse such that given a method in a class, it will search uses of this method throughout the entire project. thanks for any help.

    Put the cursor on the method, or any place it is validly invoked in your project, and press Ctrl-Shift-G. That should bring up a list of all references to it. Works with fields, classes, etc.
