Eclipse: convert upper case text to lower case and viceversa with a simple shortcut

This is just a quick post to share these 2 little shortcuts to convert text from lower case to uppercase and viceversa in Eclipse.

Lower case: CTRL+SHIFT+Y (CMD+SHIFT+Y on Mac OS X)
Upper case: CTRL+SHIFT+X (CMD+SHIFT+X on Mac OS X)

In both the combination you can select one or more character to convert.

    I come back to this post about once a month, when I again have the need to clean up somebodies code (somebody that never cares about Coding Conventions)

    Wow….been coding for years and recently a lot of my code depends on capitalization. This will sure help. It worked on a Windows 7 OS as well in eclipse.
