The Eclipse CODAN (Code Analysis) plugin is part of CDT and is a powerful static analysis tool finding all kind of possible bugs and issues. Still to my surprise not many C/C developers take advantage of it maybe because they are not aware that it exists? Eclipse provides hosting, support, training and development for Coding, EDC, IRT, CTMS and Safety. As a member of the Oracle Partner Network, we provide a solution specifically configured for your dictionary management and coding needs.

Most of us who have worked on eclipse IDE for writing code, must have use shortcuts like main or sysout and then hit CTRL+SPACE, it converts the shortcut into public static void main(String[] args){…} and System.out.println() respectively. This is extremely useful feature and I use it all the time whenever I am writing code for my project or tutorials.

Good news is you can add your own templates as well in this list and take benefit of this feature. e.g. there is a very common requirement of parsing a XML string passed as parameter. The code to parse such XML string is always almost same. We can create a template for it and then use a shortcut for it whenever needed.

How to create new eclipse templates

To create the shortcut for XML string parsing, follow below steps:

1) Open your Preferences dialog by going to
Windows -> Preferences
2) On the navigation tree on the left, go to Java -> Editor -> Templates
3) You will see a list of pre-defined templates

4) Add a new template by pressing the “New…” button
5) Fill the template information as given below and save it

6) Use the template in any java source file using CTRL+SPACE

7) Hit Enter and it will generate the code a below. Enjoy !!

You see how useful it can be. Now let’s note down some code templates which you can use directly.

Useful Eclipse Templates Examples

1) File IO Templates

The following templates are useful for reading or writing files. They use Java 7 features such as try-with-resources to automatically close files. They also use methods from NIO2.0 to obtain a buffered reader and read the file.

a) To read the text from a file

b) Read all lines from a file in a list

3) Logging Templates

The templates below are useful for creating a logger and logging messages. I use SLF4J, but they could easily be tweaked to use any other logging framework.

a) Create a new Logger

b) Check Debug scope before putting debug log

c) Log info level statement

d) Log the error

4) JUNIT Templates

a) Junit before method

b) Junit after method

c) Junit before class

d) Junit after class


Please note that these templates can be defined for other file types such as XML, JSPs etc. More templates can be found here in given links:
