I just posted this on "newbies" but realize I should have posted it here

I hope you will forgive this since I assume it is a violation of protocol to double post

I'm new here and don't know how to remove it from the newbie forum

###

very basic question - embarrased to ask but I've spent hours looking for the answer

working in eclipse - doing java
I see that in Project properties code templates they use the notation
/**
* ${tags}
*/

I understand that somewhere I can define the substitution variable tags and it would thus be substituted for me - but I can't find where I define it.

also - in looking at oracle doecumentation I see
@version     %I%, %G%


can I use that syntax in eclipse - and again how do I invoke it? how do I define I and G?

I have spent hours trying to find where I define tags .. etc.

Also - when I type @author .. etc .. is there a way that it will automatically expand to some predefined value?

thanks in advance

Dick

Eclipse finds out the substitution for any variables. If you need to change anything you could directly modify the template itself to use the value rather than a variable. Note that many of these variables get substituted when generating code.

You could look at http://help.eclipse.org/helios/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/reference/preferences/java/codestyle/ref-preferences-code-templates.htm for information of this tags.

%I% and %G% are generally substituted by SCMs - I don't think Eclipse substitutes for them.
