Dear sir,

Would you mind to tell me how to customize editor environment so =
that I don't need to type the codes such as, import java.util.*, import =
javax.swing.*, . . .etc again whenever I start to write a new Java =
program by opening a new editor.

--=20
Thanks for your help in advance.

Regards,

Peter L. M. Kwan

Peter,

This is not an appropriate newsgroup for technical questions. It's
intended only for discussing issues related to the operations of the
foundation itself and for making announcements of general interest to
the whole Eclipse community. Please use
news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.newcomer for newbie questions.

I'm not sure there is a customization to do what you want nor do I think
what you want makes all that much sense since wildcard imports are not
generally good practice because changes to the contents of a package can
result in this type of import ambiguously referring to a type that's
defined in more than one package. JDT have a very nice "Source->Organize
Imports" action that you'll grow to love. Also, as you are typing a
name, you can hit Ctrl-O and JDT will offer names as suggestions. When
typing a class name, this will give you a choice of which class to
import, if there is more than one possible choice, and will insert the
import for you, with imports all nicely grouped and sorted
alphabetically This same action does name completion on method calls. So
I can't imagine why you would want to pollute your new files with
wildcard imports and I'm quite sure you will soon agree with me.

Note that configurable things are generally available view the
Properties... popup on a resource or from Windows->Preferences... so
when looking for cool feature, hunt through those...

I think Ed meant to say Ctrl+Space, which invokes the feature called
Content Assist (some people call it "code completion" or
"auto-complete"). Content Assist is available all over the place in
Eclipse and I agree with Ed, it is one of the most lovable features.

Eric,

I did indeed! Although I love Ctrl-O too, but for a different reason
(including Ctrl-O twice). And I love that you can even use Ctrl-space in
class body to create an override. It's so nice that all these keys don't
conflict with my vi key bindings too so I get the best of both worlds!
