    Ctrl-n on Eclipse, which is therefore proven vastly superior ๐Ÿ™‚

    Steve, afaik it’s not Ctrln+N in Eclipse, but rather:
    Ctrl+N, Tab, up/down (if you don’t have correct item selected), Enter, Enter

    Or you can just make up a name for the class, then highlight the error & fix it. jb will make the class.
