Java – macro recorder for Eclipse?


Is there a good Eclipse plugin for recording and playing back macros?

I've tried this one, but it didn't do me any good- it seemed like it wasn't ready for prime time.

I know about editor templates, but I'm looking for something that I can use to record my keystrokes and then apply multiple times against a wad of text.

This seems like a strange hole in an IDE. Am I missing some built-in facility for this?

I put something together over the last month or so that you may find useful. It has limitations since the Eclipse editor/commands weren't designed with macro support in mind, but I think it works reasonably well. I just posted Practical Macro at SourceForge a couple of days ago. It requires Eclipse 3.4.
