IDE auto generated code...

Is there a way to change (In Eclipse and Netbeans, using/playing with both at the moment) to change the way the autogenerated code is formatted?

I really dislike having the { at the end of the line and not the start of a new line. I know the different styles have names (can't think of them off the top of my head) but is there an easy way to switch the style used by the ide?

In Eclipse look at Preferences>Java>Code Style>Code Formatter. Set the style you like there and format classes via Source>Format or CTRL+SHIFT+F. Don't know about NetBeans, sorry.

The original Eclipse formatter was (IMHO) pretty awful. More recent ones do better, but I like the Jalopy plugin, which comes about as close to being able to format things exactly the way I like as mindless software can get.
