When typing java code, the eclipse autocorrect currently suggests quick fixes. However, this is still tedious since you have to hover your mouse over the exception, or use shortcuts.
However, when trivial fixes are available (with typo's, e.g. privtae -> private, or Strign -> String), eclipse should autocorrect without warning (or by quickly underlining the keyword for a short period). This would help the development alot!

This is an interesting idea. However, this isn't the right forum (I can
understand how the name "proposals" might be a bit misleading).

The best way to make this sort of recommendation is to open a bug
against Eclipse/Platform [1]. Or you can make the suggestion in the
eclipse.platform forum [2].

HTH,

Wayne

I think we should rename this forum to "Project Proposals".
