Commonclipse is an eclipse plugin for jakarta commons-lang users. It features automatic generation of the following methods using commons-lang builders:

  • toString()
  • hashcode()
  • equals(Object)
  • compareTo(Object)

Commonclipse supports customization of generated methods (custom ToStringStyle, use of appendSuper(), excluded fields) through user defined properties. Commonclipse actions are available both in java editor views and in package explorer. See screenshots.

Built methods use jakarta commons-lang 2.0 builders. Commonclipse will not check for the presence of commons-lang in your project classpath, you will need to get a copy from jakarta and to set up java build path appropriately.

April, 16 2005: new version 1.3.0 for Eclipse 3.1M6 released. See the change log for details and new features.

Commonclipse is free for both commercial and non commercial use. If you like this plugin you can support its development with a small donation.
