One of the cool facilities you get when you install the testing tools in the IDE is a resource bundle searcher. Just type in some text in the window, and then a search is done through all the installed modules, and the results are listed at the bottom of the window. When you click on the results, you can choose the most appropriate line of code, which is then copied to the clipboard, from where you can paste it in your own code. Handy, right? Here's the whole tool in action:

This is part of the testing tools support in the IDE, enabled by a series of buttons in the toolbar. Just click one of the buttons, and you get the window above. I will discuss the other tools in coming blog entries.
