How come I have missed this one so long?
Things worth of trying are:
- Working with different workspaces;
- Using working sets;
- Using larger font;
- Using Fast view and in-place view to give all space to EDITOR;
- Key bindings;
eclipse -vmargs -Xmx512M
Window -> Preference -> Java -> Installed JREs
and make sure that the default (checked) JRE points to your JDK installation
eclipse -data c:\myworkspace -showlocation
The -data parameter directs Eclipse to use the “c:\myworkspace” directory on the local machine as the workspace directory. The -showlocation parameter shows the workspace location in the Eclipse title bar – very helpful when running multiple Eclipse instances at the same time.
One note – don’t waste time setting your preferences in each workspace you create. Simply use the Import and Export options under the file menu to export preference from one workspace you’ve already set up into new workspaces you create.
Windows -> Preferences -> Java -> Code Style -> Format
Click Edit… button in the right panel
Change the tab policy to “Spaces only” in the Indentation tab
After that you can do a re-format (Ctrl + Shift + Spaces) of all the source code to change all tabs to spaces
Here is a list of Eclipse plugins that I use for Eclipse 3.2
I just downloaded and installed Eclipse 3.2. I read this blog in the fast and always wanted to try it but did not follow it. Well, that is no longer the situation any more.Since I like to try and use different plugins (tools matter, right?), it is time for me to manage the plugins in a more efficient way. So after the installation of version 3.2, the first thing I did is to follow the good practice to better manage the plugins.
Good practice should be followed at the earliest time.
