Quick Start Guide

Project Selection

Before entering your search item, select the projects you would like included in your search. Select by technology (e.g. Java), domain (e.g. Oracle) and subject (e.g. Concurrency). Multiple subjects, domains and technologies may be selected at once.


While you are entering your search terms, the autocomplete system will suggest tasks and code elements that match your search.

Search Results

Once you have entered your search terms, TaskNav will show a list of search results that contain the tasks or code elements that match your search terms. In addition, TaskNav presents fulltext search results. After selecting a link, TaskNav automatically scrolls the corresponding page to the right place and highlights relevant information.
