Class CodeFormatterApplication

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    IApplication

    public class CodeFormatterApplication
    extends Object
    implements IApplication
    Implements an Eclipse Application for org.eclipse.jdt.core.JavaCodeFormatter.

    On MacOS, when invoked using the Eclipse executable, the "user.dir" property is set to the folder in which the eclipse.ini file is located. This makes it harder to use relative paths to point to the files to be formatted or the configuration file to use to set the code formatter's options.

    There are a couple improvements that could be made: 1. Make a list of all the files first so that a file does not get formatted twice. 2. Use a text based progress monitor for output.
