Builder Pattern Eclipse Plugin
The Builder Pattern was first introduced by Joshua Bloch at JavaOne 2007. It's a pattern for class creation and helps getting rid of ugly constructors, constructor telescoping and increases the general readability of your code.

- Download the jar file
- Put the jar file in the eclipse/dropins directory
In the eclipse java editor window, right click and select Source -> Generate Builder Pattern Code.
Then select which fields you want to expose in the builder.
