Is it possible to disable auto-finishing code feature.
For example:

Usually dont let me type, wastes my time and patient, by auto-adding  these symbols "    ( ) ;   "

I even cant  write  " ... "
As it results:


I use eclipse.

Bob,
Yes. Go to the Eclipse preferences. Expand Java > Editor > Content Assist.

At the bottom there is a section about auto activation. You can edit turn it off or increase the time delay so you finish typing before it shows up.
