Thanks for Jalopy, it's wonderful!
I've used Jalopy for years and find it a great time saving tool. There are a number of odd quirks about it to get used to and it is less than intuitive but that's the norm for Eclipse. Marco has moved most of the feature development into his own commercial project. It's understandable that the man wants to capitalize on his hard work. It's exceptionally powerful in that it lets you write custom headers, field, and method outlines for your comments. It is clunky however in that figuring out how to do that correctly can be a challenge. The Jalopy preferences menu is installed in the Window menu. While that is the normal location for Preferences, the preferences should be under the Preferences menu and not at the same level as it. All-in-all it is a good tool but you have to learn its quirks.
