AddModuleDepsImprovements69

Working draft, part of PlatformPoolOfRcpTopics planning.

Current Add Module Dependency dialog is very slow and misses important functionality. It is particularly problematic for newbie RCP developers, since it is used more at early stages of development.

Issues to Address

  • proper cached index for reasonable speed
  • show descriptions #70598
  • detect and forbid module deps. cycles #69574
  • allow adding excluded module's dep #70258
  • permit cluster filtering #71051
  • match case option to be able to exclude package names search #70775
  • search in classpath extensions too #71054
  • option to add transitive deps automatically (??? how to find out which are needed?)
  • enhance Import x.y.Z hint to allow search for the class in not depended-on available modules and offer Add Module Dependency dialog
