Bumping this to the top as I have the same problem. It is really making my job a bear as my boss does NOT like the use of spaces.
int<space>myInt; Bad to him
int<tab>myInt; He likes very much

I forget how to activate the tab key but can you use F2 instead?

In JBuilder 8, you can specify that the tab character is to be used by editing the project properties. Take a look at the "Formatting" tab. On the "Basic" sub-tab, in the "Indent" section is a check box to specify the use of the tab character.
