AW:Re: eclipse code format settings

I have run mx ideinit and installed the checktyle plugin. Eclipse gives us a choice of formatters.
When I go to project->properties->Java Code Style->Formatter,  under the "Active Profile" drop down menu I see a choice of the following 4 formatters:

Java Conventions [built-in]
Eclipse [built-in]
Eclipse 2.1 [built-in]
Unmanaged profile 'Graal'

Which one of these should I apply to the new projects I've created?

Yes. "./ ideinit" will create correctly set up eclipse project files. It uses project descriptions from the file at "mx/projects". You should also install the checkstyle eclipse plugin.

Thomas or Christian,
Do either of you use Eclipse? If so, can you export your Eclipse code format settings for the Graal project and send them to me?
That way, I can easily get my changes into the right formatting.

I thought you folks use mx and ideinit?  This should set up Eclipse with the right formatting settings among other things.
