Eclipse Builder Pattern

Build Status

A small plug-in that helps you create not only getters and setters, but fluent methods, too. Works very similar (and is actually based on) the getter / setter dialog in the Eclipse JDT.

We call these methods "builder pattern" at work, because Builders where the first classes that used these methods.


Getting Started


You need at least Java 8 or above to run the code.

Using the Plug-in

Update Site:

  1. Open your Eclipse IDE
  2. Open the "Install" dialog (Help -> Install New Software)
  3. Enter the URL of the update site
  4. Search for the plug-in ID ('de.slothsoft.builderpattern') or its name (Builder Pattern); you might need to deselect "Group items by category" for the plug-ins to show up
  5. Select and install via "Finish"
