I know in Eclipse there's the possibility of turning off formatting at local code parts (for example, with things that require specific formatting, like SQL statements).

// @formatter:off
private static final SQLSTRING = "SELECT stuff "
                                 "FROM table";
// @formatter:on

Is that something that Netbeans editor would support?

Hi Guys,
It would be a very nice feature to have.
It may be a bad habit from Eclipse, I guess, but it is very useful.

Any news about it ?
