How to remove the //TODO comments from auto-generated code

Eclipse Code Templates are great. Unfortunately they add lots of comments for stuff I don’t like:

public class MainTest {

     * @param args
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub



If you also don’t like the TODO comments you can change the templates via: Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Code Style -> Code Templates.

In the code tree you have the templates. Select for example Code → Method Body and press “Edit” to edit this template and to remove the todo comment.

I hope this helps. I also added this to my Eclipse IDE tutorial in the Eclipse templates section.

You find me also on Twitter. My Google+ profile can be found Lars Vogels Profile.
