description
This filetype plugin enables a user to automatically add getter/setter
methods for Java properties.  The script will insert a getter, setter,
or both depending on the command/mapping invoked.  Users can select
properties one at a time, or in bulk (via a visual block or specifying a
range).  In either case, the selected block may include comments as they
will be ignored during the parsing.  For example, you could select all
of these properties with a single visual block.

public class Test
{
   // Start your selection here
   private static int count;

   /** The name */
   private String name;

   /** The array of addresses */
   private String[] address;
   // End your selection here

   public static void main(String[] args)
   {
   }
}

The script will also add the 'static' modifier to the method if the
property was declared as 'static'.  Array-based properties will get
additional methods added to support indexing.  In addition, if a
property is declared 'final', it will not generate a setter for it.
If a previous getter OR setter exists for a property, the script will
not add any methods (under the assumption that you've manually added
your own).

The getters/setters that are inserted can be configured by the user.
First, the insertion point can be selected.  It can be one of the
following: before the current line / block, after the current line /
block, or at the end of the class (default).  Finally, the text that is
inserted can be configured by defining your own templates.  This allows
the user to format for his/her coding style.  For example, the default
value for s:javagetset_getterTemplate is:

    /**
     * Get %varname%.
     *
     * @return %varname% as %type%.
     */
    %modifiers% %type% %funcname%()
    {  
        return %varname%;
    }

Where the items surrounded by % are parameters that are substituted when
the script is invoked on a particular property.  For more information on
configuration, please see the section below on the INTERFACE.

INTERFACE (commands, mappings, and variables)
The following section documents the commands, mappings, and variables
used to customize the behavior of this script.

Commands:
  :InsertGetterSetter
      Inserts a getter/setter for the property on the current line, or
      the range of properties specified via a visual block or x,y range
      notation.  The user is prompted to determine what type of method
      to insert.
  
  :InsertGetterOnly
      Inserts a getter for the property on the current line, or the
      range of properties specified via a visual block or x,y range
      notation.  The user is not prompted.
  
  :InsertSetterOnly
      Inserts a setter for the property on the current line, or the
      range of properties specified via a visual block or x,y range
      notation.  The user is not prompted.
  
  :InsertBothGetterSetter
      Inserts a getter and setter for the property on the current line,
      or the range of properties specified via a visual block or x,y
      range notation.  The user is not prompted.

Mappings:
  The following mappings are pre-defined.  You can disable the mappings
  by setting a variable (see the Variables section below).  The default
  key mappings use the <LocalLeader> which is the backslash key by
  default ''.  This can also be configured via a variable (see below).
  
  <LocalLeader>p   (or <Plug>JavagetsetInsertGetterSetter)
      Inserts a getter/setter for the property on the current line, or
      the range of properties specified via a visual block.  User is
      prompted for choice.
  
  <LocalLeader>g   (or <Plug>JavagetsetInsertGetterOnly)
      Inserts a getter for the property on the current line, or the
      range of properties specified via a visual block.  User is not
      prompted.
  
  <LocalLeader>s   (or <Plug>JavagetsetInsertSetterOnly)
      Inserts a getter for the property on the current line, or the
      range of properties specified via a visual block.  User is not
      prompted.
  
  <LocalLeader>b   (or <Plug>JavagetsetInsertBothGetterSetter)
      Inserts both a getter and setter for the property on the current
      line, or the range of properties specified via a visual block.
      User is not prompted.
  
  If you want to define your own mapping, you can map whatever you want
  to <Plug>JavagetsetInsertGetterSetter (or any of the other <Plug>s
  defined above).  For example,

      map <buffer> <C-p> <Plug>JavagetsetInsertGetterSetter

  When you define your own mapping, the default mapping does not get
  set, only the mapping you specify.

Variables:
  The following variables allow you to customize the behavior of this
  script so that you do not need to make changes directly to the script.
  These variables can be set in your vimrc.
  
  no_plugin_maps
    Setting this variable will disable all key mappings defined by any
    of your plugins (if the plugin writer adhered to the standard
    convention documented in the scripting section of the VIM manual)
    including this one.
  
  no_java_maps
    Setting this variable will disable all key mappings defined by any
    java specific plugin including this one.
  
  maplocalleader
    By default, the key mappings defined by this script use
    <LocalLeader> which is the backslash character by default.  You can
    change this by setting this variable to a different key.  For
    example, if you want to use the comma-key, you can add this line to
    your vimrc:
        
        let maplocalleader = ','
  
  b:javagetset_insertPosition
    This variable determines the location where the getter and/or setter
    will be inserted.  Currently, three positions have been defined:
        
        0 - insert at the end of the class (default)
        1 - insert before the current line / block
        2 - insert after the current line / block

  b:javagetset_getterTemplate
  b:javagetset_setterTemplate
  b:javagetset_getterArrayTemplate
  b:javagetset_setterArrayTemplate
    These variables determine the text that will be inserted for a
    getter, setter, array-based getter, and array-based setter
    respectively.  The templates may contain the following placeholders
    which will be substituted by their appropriate values at insertion
    time:
        
        %type%          Java type of the property
        %varname%       The name of the property
        %funcname%      The method name ("getXzy" or "setXzy")
        %modifiers%     "public" followed by "static" if the property is static
    
    For example, if you wanted to set the default getter template so
    that it would produce the following block of code for a property
    defined as "public static String name":
        
        /**
         * Get name.
         * @return name as String
         */
        public static String getName() { return name; }
    
    This block of code can be produced by adding the following variable
    definition to your vimrc file.
        
        let b:javagetset_getterTemplate =
          \ "\n" .
          \ "/**\n" .
          \ " * Get %varname%.\n" .
          \ " * @return %varname% as %type%.\n" .
          \ " */\n" .
          \ "%modifiers% %type% %funcname%() { return %varname%; }"

    The defaults for these variables are defined in the script.  For
    both the getterTemplate and setterTemplate, there is a corresponding
    array-baded template that is invoked if a property is array-based.
    This allows you to set indexed-based getters/setters if you desire.
    This is the default behavior.
 
install details
1. Copy the script to your ${HOME}/.vim/ftplugins directory and make
   sure its named "java_getset.vim" or "java_something.vim" where
   "something" can be anything you want.

2. (Optional) Customize the mapping and/or templates.  You can create
   your own filetype plugin (just make sure its loaded before this one)
   and set the variables in there (i.e. ${HOME}/.vim/ftplugin/java.vim)

java_getset.vim 1.10 2002-12-02 6.0 Pete Kazmier Fixed another bug, didn't properly escape the carriage return when used in the normal command.  Sorry about the numerous uploads, I'm a VIM newbie.
java_getset.vim 1.9 2002-11-30 6.0 Pete Kazmier Fixed a bug where the inserted methods were not positioned properly in some cases.
java_getset.vim 1.6 2002-11-27 6.0 Pete Kazmier Corrected the way the end of the current class was determined (previously, sometimes the inserted methods would be inserted outside of the class body).  Also, I changed the test to see if the script was previously loaded as it seems that the script was not loaded as the variable b:did_ftpplugin is set by lots of scripts.
java_getset.vim 1.5 2002-11-26 6.0 Pete Kazmier User is now able to configure the position where getter/setters are inserted.  In addition, separate commands have been defined so users do not always have to be prompted (:InsertGetterOnly, :InsertSetterOnly, :InsertBothGetterSetter).  Key mappings have also be mapped for these commands by default.  Finally, more verbose documentation has been provided.  Thanks to Dan Sharp for his comments and suggestions.
