  1. MyEclipse 2018 slowness

    This version is extremely slow and killing the productivity. Each of below activity is lagging enough to frustrate the users.

    - Java class editor due to reference information
    - Any Run activity
    - Server start activity

      • Spring tutorial issue

        Not really an idea, but a problem with the Sprint tutorial. I downloaded the "Introduction to Spring - Knight" application. One of the first steps is to open the Knight.umr file. The problem is that there is a temporary file "Knight.umr~" included in the zipped download. When I try to open the Knight.umr file, it goes into an endless loop and I have to kill MyEclipse app. Deleting the temporary file (Knight.umr~) before opening the Knight.umr file solves the problem.

              Activation should typically take 10-20 seconds, never more than a minute. If appears to be taking longer than this, there’s probably something else wrong which would cause it to eventually fail.

              The most common cause of activation failures is not having connectivity – see our proxy doc for notes on setting it up correctly: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topic/configuring-the-network-proxy-settings/ If you still experience issues,

              Due to the diverse nature of issues that could still result in failures or delays, do write to us at support@genuitec.com or open a thread here: http://myeclipseide.com/forums so we can investigate and resolve ASAP.

              • Imported Angular Project missing entry in Server tab

                When you import something like the angular-material-course project into eclipse, you dont get an entry under Angular CLI servers!

                BTW - isn't there a better place to post bugs ?

                • typescript editor should off Ctrl-Shift-o (import optimise)

                  When you are editing java, imports can be opimised simply by typing the Cmd-Shift-o comination (Mac) or Ctrl-shift-o.

                  I see that the typescript editor is aware when an import is missing, and even knows which one to suggest, so why the hell doesn't it just add the import automatically, or at least give us the optimise menu option.

                  • Make it easy to use https for testing web apps

                    Testing Oauth2 apps (e.g. Google logins) requires that your redirect URLs use https.

                    I get round this by using nginx as a reverse proxy.

                    Would be nice if myEclipse provided a more elegant solution to this issue.

                    • The 1st thing I do with a new eclipse workspace is set preference 'enable spell checking' to false.

                      By default, the eclipse spell checker red underlines words in your files that it doesn't recognise.

                      IMHO, the default should be false.

                      • Don't try to network activate by default, always ask user.

                        My company firewalls prevent network activation, so every time, it's fail, retry, then select the web activate.
