Description cld71 2008-11-26 18:15:51 UTC
When Format is called on a normal Java file after turning off "Spaces" "Before Parentheses", and "Spaces" "Before Left
Braces" for if statements in the Options the Java file looks like this:
if(value == null){

But, when Format is called on a JSP file it looks like this:
if (value == null) {

Format should of made the JSP file look like this:
if(value == null){

Just like the Java file.

mfukala, is this problem at JSP side or is it handled by Java module? Or does this depend on Parsing API?
Comment 2 Marek Fukala 2008-11-28 09:24:15 UTC
The formatting of java code is done by java formatter AFAIK. This may also be a settings problem. Tomasz Slota will tell
you more.
Comment 3 Tomasz Slota 2008-11-28 10:23:16 UTC
i think Dusan is a better person to ask...
Comment 4 Dusan Balek 2008-11-28 12:53:26 UTC
The problem is that org.netbeans.modules.editor.indent.spi.CodeStylePreferences works with Document/FileObject's
mime-type only. CodeStylePreferences should be modified to work also with embeddings.
Comment 5 Petr Dvorak 2009-01-08 17:54:27 UTC
Is the priority set correctly? I would suggest lowering the priority to P3 (standard)...
Comment 6 Vitezslav Stejskal 2009-01-12 11:23:45 UTC
Well, this problem makes all java formating settings non-functional in embedded code. So, perhaps P2 is reasonable here.

Proposed API change to CodeStylePreferences
Comment 8 Dusan Balek 2009-02-05 15:50:48 UTC
I would like to propose a small API change to the CodeStylePreferences class (diff is attached).
