Eclipse has a built-in feature called “Task List” that allows you to view and manage a list of tasks. These tasks include TODO comments, bugs, and issues. While working on a project, you can use this feature to keep track of the tasks that need to be finished, prioritize the work that needs to be done, and stay organized.
You can do the following to use the Task List feature in Eclipse:
- To access the Task List view, select “Window” > “Show View” > “Other” > “General” > “Task List” from the drop-down menu under “Show View.“
- You can view a list of tasks in your code, such as TODO comments, in the Task List view by selecting “Tasks” from the drop-down menu. This will bring up the Task List view.
- In addition, you can make new tasks by right-clicking the Task List view and selecting “Add Task” from the context menu that appears.
- Right-clicking a task in the Task List view and selecting “Mark as Done” from the context menu allows you to indicate that a task is finished once it has been finished.
- You can also sort the tasks according to various criteria, such as the order of importance or the category in which they fall.
In particular, when working with large code bases, this feature can be very helpful for keeping track of tasks that need to be completed, prioritizing work, and staying organized while working on a project.
While working with Eclipse, it can also help you increase your productivity and efficiency by providing a central location to view and manage tasks in your code. This can be of great benefit to you.
