JDT Tip: Mark Occurrences in Java editor

I think everyone knows that the Java editor highlights occurrences of variables and method calls.

But did you know that it also highlights
  • Method exit points - select (or place caret in) the method return type

  • Method calls or statements throwing an exception - select (or place caret in) an exception in a catch block

  • Break/Continue targets - select (or place caret in) break or continue keywords

    1. Eclipse also can find the nth expression of a character within a multi character structure. You can even choose which color the expression will be rendered in. It is way cool.
