About the plugin
GenerateToString is a action plugin for IDEA that is used to create or update java classes toString() method. The reason is valuebeans usually needs to dump their fieldvalues for debug purpose, and it's tedious to write the dump code for this. So this action plugin generates the code to dump all the fields in a simple manner.
v2.18 for IDEA 3.0x/4.0x/4.5 (jul-9-2004)
- Compiled with IDEA EAP build 2178 (Pallada)
- Fixed bug to detect IDEA version for build 2178, now assuming IDEA 4.x/4.5x series as default to avoid problems if JetBrains changes name pattern in the future.
- Fixed bug to autosave templates in plugin folder for build 2178 - now moved to USER_HOME\.IntelliJIdea\config\plugins\tostring-plugin
There was some problem uploading a version for IDEA 4.x since this 'since-build' stuff by JetBrains. I got a mail from a JetBrain employee who will sort it out. You can download the .jar and source from the wiki homepage.
The EAP build is there with the .... for IDEA 4.5x name.
