Why should "beautify while typing" denigrate java?

That's the question...What's that deep difference with C/C++/ObjectiveC and Java such that this features isn't available for Java too?

It's not due as much to deep differences in syntax, as to the available time.  SE2012 was heavily front-loaded with a lot of work for the generic pieces of the beautifier engine and related boilerplate, so C++ and Obj-C was all we could fit into the schedule. 

Now that the basics are already in, adding Java into SE2013 has been mostly a matter of just addressing the differences between our "common to most brace languages" module, and additional syntax in Java.  So it's going pretty quickly.

Thanks for your reply.
I really hope SE's java support will soon be as full as the C/C++ is and that it will finally far ahead than the Eclipse/NetBeans counterparts...
