158. Using shortcuts for System.out.println( ) statement in Eclipse IDE







As we know that, System.out.println(" "); is the most used statement in Java programming language. Instead of typing the complete Statement, we can actually use a shortcut for saving our time as shown below

type 'Sysout' and then press ctrl + space

and Eclipse IDE will automatically convert the above statement to System.out.println( );  there by saving your time.

Lets implement this on Eclipse IDE -

1. Launch Eclipse IDE, Create a new Java Project 'Project 007' , under it create a new Class 'ShortCut' with main( ) method as shown below - 




2. Now type Sysout into the main() method as shown below -




3. Place the Cursor at the end of 'Sysout' text and Press 'Ctrl' and 'Space bar' keys at the same time and observe that Eclipse IDE automatically converted Sysout to System.out.println( ); statement as shown below -




4. Enter the text 'Sysout shorcut' into the statement as shown below and save  -




5. Run the Java Class file 'ShortCut' 

6. Observe that the following output is displayed -





You can also type Syso and then press ctrl + space  as a shortcut for the same System.out.println( ); statement.

Lets implement this on Eclipse IDE -

1. Launch Eclipse IDE, open 'Project 007' -> 'ShortCut' Class, and type Syso instead of Sysout as shown below -


2. Place the Cursor at the end of 'Syso' text and Press 'Ctrl' and 'Space bar' keys at the same time and observe that Eclipse IDE automatically converted Syso to System.out.println( ); statement as shown below -




3. Enter the text 'Syso shorcut' into the statement as shown below and save  -


4. Run the 'ShortCut' Java Class file and observe that the output is displayed as shown below -



Hence we can use Syso or Sysout as shortcuts for System.out.println( ); statement for reducing time while coding.
