A quick look at the JDT APIs reveals CodeFormatter.format:
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/topic/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.i sv/reference/api/org/eclipse/jdt/core/formatter/CodeFormatte r.html#format (int,%20java.lang.String,%20int,%20int,%20int,%20java.lang.S tring)
So, a basic code format could be implemented as a function tag that called
this. It gets a little tricky, as format returns a TextEdit, the the Java
doc shows how to turn this into a modified string:
There also appears to be the very useful ToolFactory.createCodeFormatter()
method that instantiates a code formatter:
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/topic/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.i sv/reference/api/org/eclipse/jdt/core/ToolFactory.html#creat eCodeFormatter(java.util.Map,%20int)
The last problem is getting the options for the target project. This appears
to be done via a number of methods:
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/topic/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.i sv/reference/api/org/eclipse/jdt/core/IJavaProject.html#getO ptions(boolean)
So, all this suggests you could implement a tag such as:
..... Java code to format ...
I'd be interested in adding such a tag to JET. Would you be interested in
implementing it (and getting your masters to agree to its contribution)?
