Hi,

I found that code in both the images are of same formatting.

However, you can control the formatting through the option under Window->Preferences->Java->Code Style->Formatter, then click the "Edit.." button.

And to add to Amit's answer, because it can be a little hard to find. Once, you click the Edit button as above, then go to the "Braces" tab and change all the options from "Same line" to... "Next line"
