Is there any option which i can activate when using ECLIPSE so that when i m typing S... for String or i.. for int etc... to automaticly give me suggestions that i want a int if the first letter is i or i want a String if the first letter is S or anything else depending on what i m typing. I switched to Java since i m familliar with C# and VISUAL STUDIO gave me that choice and now i m quite insecure when writting some other built in methods or classes. I ve downloaded the Classic eclipse from the eclipse downloads url.

Just Google those terms for details.
