I am the founder and CEO of Data Geekery GmbH, located in Zurich, Switzerland. With our company, we have been selling database products and services around Java and SQL since 2013. Ever since my Master's studies at EPFL in 2006, I have been fascinated by the interaction of Java and SQL. Most of this experience I have obtained in the Swiss E-Banking field through various variants (JDBC, Hibernate, mostly with Oracle). I am happy to share this knowledge at various conferences, JUGs, in-house presentations and on our blog. Lukas is a DZone MVB and is not an employee of DZone and has posted 219 posts at DZone.

On fresh Eclipse installations, I usually feel a bit naked, until I realise that this lovely little plugin is not part of Eclipse itself. It’s called AnyEdit tools, and it features the following nice things:

  • Convert Tabs <-> Spaces
  • Convert: Chars <-> Html entities
  • Convert: Camel <-> Underscores
  • Convert: Capitalize
  • Convert: Invert Case
  • Convert: To Upper Case
  • Convert: To Lower Case
  • Convert: From/To Base64
  • Compare/Replace with Clipboard
  • Compare/Replace with Workspace File…
  • Compare/Replace with External File…
  • Compare/Replace with Opened Editor…

Most of these features are available through shortcuts, too. Download it, too and you’ll never want to miss it again!

I would not consider this one nice (I guess it depends what programming languages it operates on) -    Camel <-> Underscores

It doesn't depend on the language, it's just basic text editor enhancement. The most useful of all proved to be the "compare with clipboard" feature
