I try to develop a little plugin for JOSM by using the developersguide
(http://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/DevelopersGuide/DevelopingPlugins), but
I am facing some problems.

My first problem concerns setting up the plugin environment. I have
checked out the plugin environment with Eclipse. The Problem is, that the
autocorrect of Eclipse doesn't work in the environment. For exempal if i
change some code in the existing plugins, my errors are not shown. The
icons of the classes are also a little different then usually (they have a
hollow J). Did I make some mistake by checking out the environment?

Can somebody please give me a little tutorial how to start developing a
JOSM Plugin with Ecllipse?
