For other macros, besides that of the source code macro discussed below, please visit The Guide to Confluence Macros.

The source code macro is a useful way of presenting technical information to a group of users online. It's use is very straightforward. Any form of code can be included between {code} elements and we provide arguments for XML, SQL, and Java.

As you read below, look for the bolded code tags to indicate how the highlighting occurs.

XML


\{code:XML\}
<test>
    <another tag="attribute"/>
</test>
\{code\}

gives

<test>
    <another tag="attribute"/>
</test>

SQL

\{code:SQL\}
SELECT * FROM TABLE1 WHERE ID=0 AND NAME NOT IN (SELECT NAME FROM NAMES)
\{code\}
SELECT * FROM TABLE1 WHERE ID=0 AND NAME NOT IN (SELECT NAME FROM NAMES)

Java

\{code:Java\}

public class UserMacroBean

    String name;
    String template;

        return name;
    }

    {
        this.name = name;
    }

    public String getTemplate()
    {
        return template;
    }

    public void setTemplate(String template)
    {
        this.template = template;
    }
}
\{code\}

gives
