A programmer uses the keyboard more often than the mouse, and when typing, a right click to select a function also costs much time and effectiveness.
No matter you’re an eclipse user or a new comer to Eclipse, the following list of shortkeys can help you to save much time.
Ctrl + Shift + O : to open Resource.
You can use this shortkey to open almost everything, and the good news is that you can use expression character like * or extension like .java or .html… eg: if I want to search for a Java file that contains “Test” in the file name, I can use the expression like the above: *Test*.java.
Ctrl + / : to comment a line, Ctrl + Shift + / to comment multiple lines
Ctrl + E : to open current editors, you can use expression here to search for file name.
Ctrl + O : to open Inherited Members of class.
Tips: you can also use expression to search and jump to methods or fields.
Ctrl + Shift + O: To organize Imports
Most of the time, Eclipse can automatically imports classes in other packages for you. But sometimes you need to import them manually. Use Ctrl + Shift + O can help you import unique class automatically and for classes that have the same name, it will popup a selector for you.
