Auto code completion on Eclipse

I want Eclipse to automatically suggest to me all possible options, while I’m writing some variable/class name or keyword, like in Flash Develop or Visual Studio.

Is it possible?

If not, with which Java IDE can I get this?

I’m specifically asking about a way to automatically get the same thing I get using CTRL + Space, while I’m typing.


You can also set auto completion to open automatically while typing.

Go to Preferences > Java > Editor > Content Assist and write .abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz in the Auto activation triggers for Java field.

See this question for more details.
