Codetrails Connect Community Edition (from the people who brought you Eclipse Code Recommenders) is a platform for software development teams where experienced developers can share the knowledge how to use an API with their team – or even the whole Eclipse community – in no time.
By installing the Codetrails Connect into your IDE, your IDE immediately starts learning how any API is used correctly by watching how you interact with the it and write code. This knowledge then can be shared with Codetrails' Community Server for Eclipse which shares the newly gained knowledge with the whole Eclipse community.
After installing Codetrails Connect, you may need to enable it. Activate Content Assist anywhere. If you see a proposal “Enable intelligent code completion?”, simply press Enter to enable it.
If you don’t see the proposal and Codetrails Connect isn’t working, goto Preferences > Code Recommenders > Completions and select “Enable intelligent code completion”.
Features Codetrails Connect offers so far:
Eclipse’ standard Java code completion always presents you a list of all accessible methods you may call on an instance – and this is often way more than you want to see. With Codetrails Connect Hippie Completion, proposals additionally display information about which method you are likely to call. You can configure Hippie Completion to rank the most relevant proposals on top, the irrelevant proposals below and to help you to quickly spot the relevant methods for your task at hand.
Codetrails Connect Community Edition contributes the world's first crowd-sourced code completion engine for Java. In a nutshell, it learns which method completions you have selected and uses this information to rank future proposals for the same type:
Hippie completion works on static methods as well, helping you to pick the right proposal from an often long list of static methods.
Similar to learning relevant method calls, Hippie Completion learns which constructors you called when creating an instance. Noteworthy about constructor completion is that Hippie Completion learns likely completion scenarios even when subtypes of a completion are selected. For instance, when completing an assignment to the abstract class List<?>, it learns that the assignment is frequently completed with new ArrayList<>(). This is then presented above all other Eclipse-generated proposals.
