Proudly present: Eclipse Search CSV Export

Tobias Althoff, Susanne Könning and Ji Shin, computer science students at the University of Münster, have developed the Eclipse Search CSV Export plug-in. It is their very first Eclipse plug-in, which was originally created for Pacx, the Platform for Annotated Corpora in XML. But it can be used in Eclipse and other Eclipse based application as well. Since I was only their guide to the Eclipse universe, I would now like to yield the floor to the real authors:

Do you know this feeling? You are searching something, find it, and then… then what? You don’t have any way to use your Eclipse search results in another program. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to export your results into a *.csv file?

Guess what! That’s possible now. We proudly present the CSV Export Plug-in for the Eclipse File Search.

    ach menno – voller freude hab ich das Plugin installiert, und siehe da – es funktioniert nicht… warum?!? wenn man genauer liest findet man den Hinweis “Please note, currently only File Search results can be exported.” welcher die ganze Funktionalität dermassen beschneidet, dass es eigentlich nicht brauchbar ist….

      Hi Frank,

      The Eclipse Search View displays an ISearchResult. Unfortunately, the ISearchResult is a very generic interface which does not provide any information on the results list (not even the number of hits). In other words, for each kind of search an implementation is required to tell CSV Export which rows and columns there are and what to fill in the table cells.

      What kind of search result would you like to export? Which columns do you expect in the exported CSV table?
