Change user name in eclipse

The code comment templates are handy for inserting the author of a class, which is handy in rather large projects. For example, here is my template for types(classes):
/**
* @author ${user}
*
* ${tags}
*/

However under windows (and probably *nix as well) it just inserts the current user name. But I want it always to display my real name - which is more meaningful when employees come and go.

You can change it by passing this argument on the comment line:
You need to put it at the end of your command line.
eclipse.exe -vmargs -Duser.name="You real name"
