Eclipse is not a terminal anymore – Default line size of Java code formatter is now 120

Approx. 3 years ago, I opened a bug report to increase the Java code formatter to 120. This is now implemented, and will be the new Eclipse JDT default for Mars.

I think that is a good sign, the Eclipse project is less and less restricted by its past.

    Good to see the default value updated to 120. Though with the increasing size of the monitor, I usually prefer line wrapping at 150 characters, maybe will become the default in another 3 years 🙂
