So lets understand the code written in the default files ...

1.) There is a CONTENT tag in which we have to write contents or code which we wanna use many and many times in our programming languages .. like JAVA, PHP and all other languages!!
2.)${1:this} means when we supply our small snippets and hit tab 1st time then it will stop at "this"same as ${2:snippet} for 2nd time of tabtriggering 
3.)So now i'm gonna make build a Snippet for JAVA Programming language.. as shown in the picture below!!

save the file as p.sublime-snippet as your snippet name as shown in the picture below ...

now whenever during coding you press p and hit enter the following code will appear on the screen and with

With the item selected which we supplied in the ${1:/*ClassSwap*/} and when you will hit tab
it will select the next item which you supplied in ${2:/*CodeSwap*/} as shown in the picture below
