Setting the @author in Eclipse.

It seems there are basically two ways to set the correct author name (opposed to the system user name Eclipse is using per default) in Eclipse as it appears for example within the autogenerated javadoc comments.

First using -vmargs settings:
eclipse -clean -showlocation -vmargs -Xms512m -Xmx900m -XX:PermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -Duser.name="Your full name"

The other one is just by  changing the associated templates in Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Editor -> Templates -> @author , hardcoding the author’s name.
