New version of “Eclipse Code Formatter for Java” plugin –

Breakpoints will now be preserved – that is the major change. Unfortunately linebreakpoints are not supported, but better than nothing and better than the previous state. I also updated the embedded eclipse formatter engine to 4.4.


Here the full list of changes.

  • [Feature 47]: Preserve Class/Method/Field breakpoints (experimental, can be disabled in options)
  • [Bugfix 53]: Fixed: Do not remove linebreakpoint, if line is not included in selection
  • [Bugfix 52]: Fixed: Cannot assign shortcut for “Format with Eclipse Formatter” action
  • [Task 46]: Update to use eclipse formatter libs from eclipse 4.4
  • [Task 48]: Support only NetBeans 7.4 and above
  • [Task 49]: Add donation button
  • [Task 50]: Add link to github/homepage

Downlad it from the plugin center or install it directly from your IDE (Tools/Plugins).
