Eclipse short cuts to improve development productivity

To improve development productivity, every eclipse user should learn short to speed up development. Basic rule I suggest is you should very last when you use eclipse, i.e. as a developer we should never type complete code sentence rather we should take help of eclipse to generate code or append the problem, etc…

I believe, every good eclipse user should know some minimum keys to work with eclipse. Here we are listing down few of them.
