Let's say I'm doing Java or Python in Eclipse and I'm making GUI programs. So I type all the code needed to bring up a window to the screen.

Well I may have 40 or more GUI programs I'd like to write, so I'm wondering if Eclipse would be able to save the code that I typed in a template. That way I'm not typing the same code 40 times over.

There are template languages such as Epsilon, JET, or Xtend you might use to generate something from some inputs (model).

Hope that I understand what you are searching for. :D You can definitely do that in Eclipse using code templates. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to Window > Preferences.
  2. Choose Java > Editor > Templates or PyDev > Editor > Templates.
  3. Click New, give your template a name, and paste your GUI code in the "Pattern" field.

Now, when you're in the editor, press Ctrl + Space, start typing the template name, and select it from the list to insert the code.
Hope this helps!
