More XCode text macros for Java

A nice feature (well more on a par with Emacs and such than really nice) of XCode is that you can extends its code completion macros.

Please treat yourself to this plug-in which supplies the following two Java additions (more may be added as I find the need).

  • For each, that is a for loop iterating through a collection, enumeration or array. Key: foreach.
  • Javadocs function header. A complete javadocs documentation block for a function, including hooks for arguments, return value and see also. Key: jdocs.

To install, select "Get info" on the XCode app in the Finder. Press the + sign below the plugins section and locate the Java extras.xctxtmacro file.
