I didn't understand what is your idea/suggestion, but I work with large
amount of Java files this way:

1. Open a dired buffer for each project (Maven module in my case)
2. Set dired switches (C-u s) to contain -R so it outputs all files
3. Use file name incremental search (C-s) to find what I want. I also
have (setq dired-isearch-filenames t) in .emacs for it to be more
