Eclipse Kepler - good features of Eclipse 4.3 ( Eclipse Kepler ) JDT / Workbench

Detached windows with sash When you detach a view or editor into its own separate window, it now has all the capabilities of a normal workbench window. They now support multiple stacks of views separated by sashes with arbitrary layouts. The detached parts will remain synchronized with the master window that they were detached from. This is especially handy for people developing with two or more monitors, so they can spread views across several monitors and keep them synchronized. Import nested projects The Import Projects wizard now has an option to continue searching for projects to import recursively within any project it finds. This allows you to import physically nested projects at the same time. Open Resource dialog enhancements The Open Resource (Ctrl+Shift+R) dialog now offers direct access to the Show In and Open With menus via drop-down buttons. On platforms that support mnemonics, the buttons are also accessible via Alt+W and Alt+H. Whole word option

Global search bar The workbench now has a global search field in the tool bar. Multi-drag sash You can now place the cursor at the intersection of two or more sashes and drag them all at the same time. When you are going to be dragging multiple sashes, the cursor will change to one with 4-way arrows. The image below indicates one such intersection with a red circle. Ant updated to 1.8.3 and JUnit to 4.10 The bundled version of Apache Ant in the platform has been updated to version 1.8.3. The JUnit 4 version shipped with Eclipse has been updated to 4.10. CamelCase in Quick Outline The Quick Outline (Ctrl+O) and Quick Hierarchy (Ctrl+T) in the Java Editor now also support camelCase matching on the element name, quite similar to the Open Type dialog and Content Assist. Quick Assist to convert enhanced for loop Ever encountered an enhanced for loop and needed access to the Iterator or to the loop index? Now, you can just use a Quick Assist (Ctrl+1) to conve

Lightweight refresh on access Previous Eclipse versions relied on native refresh providers (on Windows) or a polling mechanism to keep the workspace synchronized with the underlying file system. This capability can be still enabled by selecting Refresh using native hooks or polling on  Preferences > General > Workspace. Now a new lightweight mechanism is available. Files discovered to be out-of-sync by the workspace, for example while accessing the file content by an editor, will be automatically asynchronously refreshed. If you want to refresh files this way, go to  Preferences > General > Workspace and select Refresh on access. The Problems view icon shows state The Problems view icon now indicates whether the view contains warnings or errors. This is especially useful when working with maximized editor area as it allows you to see whether there are errors or warnings without going to the Problems view. Branch column in History view There is now a column

ATG and XML File Combination

              An XML file might appear at several points in the CONFIGPATH. The ATG platform, at runtime,   automatically combines all the XML files in the CONFIGPATH with the same name into a single composite file, which is then used by the appropriate component.               XML files are combined one tag at a time: in other words, tags are matched up, and the combination rules are applied to each pair of matched tags. XML file combination is controlled with an XML attribute named xml-combine. This attribute is used only in the preprocessing stage of XML file combination. The xml-combine attribute can have the following values: xml-combine = "replace" xml-combine = "remove" xml-combine = "append" xml-combine = "append-without-matching" -->  This is the same as  xml-combine="append" , except that embedded tags are not matched and combined recursively. The content is simply appended. xml-combine = "prepend"
