[program-java] Re: Eclipse Discovery About Code Completion

Hi,
All I really want to do is to stay in Eclipse while I'm writing in a text file. 
I don't understand how Eclipse does things right now, and that bothers me. But 
what I want to do is to try to make a project and keep a text file with it that 
has notes to myself about what I'm learning about Eclipse and Java so that it's 
all in one place. And I want to do that without breaking something.

Thanks.

Jim

Jim:

Yes, I have a .dat file that is part of my project. It doesn't get compiled 
into the package as do xml but resides in the source folder.

Hi,
Does anyone here write text files in Eclipse and keep them with your projects?

Gov.... I hear you loud and clear. There are other "Perspectives" as well, such 
as the Debug, SQL, etc.

The gov doesn't move very fast. I have 3.3.

Since version 3.3 of Eclipse, the default Perspective is the JEE / J2E, however 
there are differences between the Java and J2E.

I am usually in the Java EE prospective. Is that what you mean?

Suzy:

"A quick navigation is alt + shift + w for package,h for history, o outline, 
and p for problems", a whee fly in the ointment is that these key strokes are 
"Perspective Dependent".



"Alt shift q gets you to the editor", F12 has the same functionality.






"Control shift o puts you into the imports", only if there are import 
conflicts. I.E. java.awt.List or java.util.List. The same key stroke will add 
the imports required as well as remove the unused imports.

Subject: [program-java] Eclipse Discovery About Code Completion



Hi,

I made a discovery just now because I was writing some JAWS code to examine 
what was popping up in some Eclipse windows. This is about code completion.



As you are typing along in a Java program and you want to get a list of code 
completion choices, do this.



1. type part of a class, such as System, then a period.



2. As soon as you press the period key, immediately press the Tab key. That 
puts you in a list of choices.



3. Pick a choice and press Enter.



4. press the period key again, then Tab again.



5. Pick a choice.



I'm sure you get the pattern by now.



There's more to discover, such as what happens when you hit Control + Space and 
Control + Shift + Space, but I haven't figured out that yet.



Thanks.



Jim
