Eclipse disable pydev CTRL+SHIFT+T and enable Java open type binding

I am a java programmer but I can code in python too so for some work I had to code in python and I installed pydev in eclipse but It messed up with my Open Type (CTRL +SHIFT+ T) binding and when I now hit that it asks me a popup to tell whether to open python class browser or java open type, off course I hate it because 99% of the time I want Java open Type. The way to get it working back was to go to

Windows->preferences->General->Keys  and go to the python "Show Class Browser" binding and instead of choosing "In Windows" choose "Pydev editor scope" and you are all set.


  1. Thanks for the post. I too am having this problem. One thing, I think you intended the key binding to be CTRL+Shift+T.

  2. Thanks I have fixed the misspelling.

  3. I did this but it resets whenever I restart eclipse... Any advice?

  4. Are you creating a new workspace everytime? It remains the same for one workspace, if you switch workspace,then it resets.

Spring query timeout or transaction timeout

If you are using spring to manage transactions then you can specify default transaction timeout using

    <bean id="transactionManager"
        <property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
        <property name="defaultTimeout" value="30" /> <!--30 sec--->             

or you can override the timeout in the annotation

    @Transactional(readOnly = false, timeout=30)

or if you are doing it programatic transactions then you can do

DataSourceTransactionManager transactionManager = new DataSourceTransactionManager(dataSource);

 or you can override the timeout for one particular transaction

TransactionTemplate transactionTemplate = new TransactionTemplate();

Python adding pid file

I have a thumbnail generator that launches multiple processes and the correct way to shut it down is to send kill -HUP to the parent process. To automate I had to write a pid file from python, it was a piece of cake
def writePidFile(): pid = str(os.getpid()) f = open('', 'w') f.write(pid) f.close()
