About

The toString() method is widely used to represent objects as human-readable text and practically every class should implement it. Usually it is very simple: generated string contains the object type and lists values of the most important fields. That's why process of writing such methods can easilly be automated. Eclipse, as the best java IDE in the world, should include functionality of automatic toString() method generation to make its users lives even simpler. Implementing it is the aim of this project.

There were many bugs posted regarding this problem, see bug 26070 for details.

This project is part of 2008 Google Summer of Code.
