The new Java code formatter can be enabled via the Java > Work in =
Progress > Code Formatter preference page. This formatter will be much =
more flexible than its predecessors, although you'll have to take that =
on faith until its new preference page is ready.=20

I am currious why they are bothering re-implementing this when there are =
already a couple of formatters available and, in fact, potentially the =
best formatter ever, Jalopy. Wouldnt it make more sense to try to =
integrate Jalopy more tightly into Eclipse and build on their successes?
