Use JBuilder's Code Templates to Write Common Java Instructions

JBuilder's templates allow you to insert some of the most common Java instructions into the editor. For instance, suppose you want to add a main method to a class. Instead of writing everything manually, by using templates you would need only to do this:
CTRL+J main

There are several dozens of pre-defined templates. Here are some of the most useful (must press CTRL^J first):
out  -> System.out.println("")

tryc -> try

        catch (Exception ex)


syn -> synchronized ()


fora -> for (int i = 0; i < .length;


There are many more. It is also possible to define new ones. Just go to Tools -> Editor Options -> Templates.

This tip was tested with JBuilder 4.0 and 5.0.
