Subject: [program-java] eclipse

Hi Anna, J.R. and others,

I have been reading a Java thread concerning eclipse and I thought I would
paste it into this list. You will find it directly after my name.


Yes, Eclipse has functionality similar to intellisense. I use it constantly.
Eclipse also can offer a number of source code options like formatting or
code templates. You can do things like select a line of code and then press
alt+s and select surround with try/catch and eclipse will automatically put
in the try and catch blocks appropriate to the code selected. You can do
things like define a set of private variables and then have Eclipse
automatically generate all the public getter and setter methods. One of the
code templates I use most frequently is the one for putting in
System.out.println statement. You can type the letters sysout and then press
ctrl+space bar and Eclipse will generate System.out.println(); and put the
cursor between the ( and ). You can select a variable name and press alt+r
for the refactor menu and select rename. When you enter the new name, you
can tell eclipse to find and replace the references to the old name with the
new one. This is especially helpful because you can do the same thing for a
method name, a class name, or even a package name. If you are unsure as to
the correct import for a given object but you are sure you have the
appropriate jars, you can put your cursor on the object name and press
ctrl+shift+m and Eclipse will find the package that object belongs to and
insert the import statement at the top of your code. If the object type is
found in more than one package, you will be prompted to select the one you
want from a list. For example the object type Date could be either
java.util.Date or java.sql.Date. 

So, Eclipse offers many, many ways of helping you rapidly develop your
projects. If you get the version of Eclipse designed for web development,
then, yes you can develop JSP pages or web services.

Subject: Re: Accessible Java Development Environment

Hi Jay,
wonderful, I am curious about Eclipse. Few questions about it. Does it have
accessible intellisense like thing? (it really helps in programming,
especially for case-sensitive languages.) Are We able to develop all types
of java programs (including JSPs) with Eclipse?
I will also look at it on the link you provided; thanks
