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.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
