i've been using Idea and fond of it's key maps:
Ctrl-D to duplicate the current or selected line(s)
Ctrl-x to delete and copy to buffer the deleted line
etc...

how can i do so in Eclipse and how can i assign such actions to the combination of keys?

by default, CTRL-D deletes the current line. to change any keystrokes go to Window->Preferences->General->Keys-> find CTRL-D and click EDIT. Remove "delete" from the list. Find "duplicate lines" in the dropdown list of actions. Click Add and then Apply
