MyEclipse Usability Suggestions

Here’s your chance to influence features going into the MyEclipse CI releases!

We’re focusing on making MyEclipse awesome with new emerging technologies, amongst other cool new features. We’d like your help to hear what YOU want to see. Vote for your favorites or add your own suggestion!

How can we make MyEclipse fun and more usable?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.

      Given the choice between Subclipse and Subversive as well as needing specific versions of the the plugin based on your repository, bundling a Subversion suite with MyEclipse might make things more difficult for our users.

      It is evident, however, that this is a significant pain point – we’re looking at how we can make the process of adding Subversion support to MyEclipse a lot easier for everyone.

    • Maven plugin support

      The Maven support for "Goals" is awesome! I would like to see Maven plugin support for common, mainstream plugins like: maven-resources-plugin, maven-jaxb2-plugin, maven-compiler-plugin, jetty-maven-plugin, maven-war-plugin and etc...

      • HTML5 is a huge deal so tracking the spec really well would be a big help

        I know the HTML5 spec is a working draft and changes A LOT; I mean, there are even "nightlies" of the stupid thing. All I'm asking is that you try to make each new release of MyEclipse compliant to whatever the latest released draft spec is. Right now it's the 10/29/13 5.1 spec here: http://www.w3.org/TR/html51/ But for 2014, please make it whatever is latest. :-)

            In MyEclipse 2015, we’ve added PhoneGap support, allowing to use the latest version of PhoneGap (and thus Cordova) in your projects. You also have access to the entire Cordova / PhoneGap plug-in space.

            We’re still working on adding templates and updating the jQuery Mobile support.

            MyEclipse 2015 CI 1 is the first release in the 2015 CI stream, get it here and let us know how you like the new PhoneGap features! http://genuitec.com/t/u/me2015dl

          • Better documentation of new features

            For example, new palette options in the image editor for Warp Tool and Translation tool exist, but they do not seem to do anything but put a grid or line on the image and there is no documentation to be found anywhere. Features do not help if there is no way to figure out how to use them.

                • Auto generate Java beans from JSON file

                  Its a hugely unproductive task to create Java beans from JSON/XML files. Having a utility to reverse engineer beans and adding jaxb annotations will save lot of time for everyone.

                      • Gradle Support

                        Create or find a plugin that supports Gradle natively like Subclipse does for Subversion. IntelliJ supports this now natively and I believe it's becoming a large market.

                          • Better monitoring of Java heap

                            Although the list of running threads within a Remote Java Application in the Debug panel is great, it would be nice to allow for easier labeling of the threads from within code, memory utilization and overall better visualization in real time.

                                  • Whatever "Synchronizing script resources with Tern server" is needs to be removed

                                    I'm really, really having a hard time having the JavaScript environment be usable. If I go into anything with JavaScript I get the task "Synchronizing script resources with Tern server" that never has any progress and spawns a node process that takes as much CPU as possible. JavaScript has never worked well in MyEclipse (https://www.myeclipseide.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=27153&highlight= is still not fixed after 4 years) so just get out of the way and let me edit.

                                      With MyEclipse 2015 we moved to a Tern based inference engine from the older JSDT engine.

                                      Beyond MyEclipse 2015 CI 12 and in MyEclipse 2016 / 2017, JS performance is far improved out of the box so no additional tweaking should be required.

                                      If you still experience problems, you can change some settings or turn off the support entirely – see https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topic/troubleshooting-performance-issues-in-myeclipse-2015/ for details

                                    • "Web App Libraries" causes files to be locked in MyEclipse 2015, 2016 and 2017

                                      When you have "Web App Libraries" added to the build path of a Dynamic Web Project, the jar files in "WEB-INF/lib" may be intermittedly locked. I have reproduced this issue in MyEclipse 2015 Stable 1.0, 2016 CI and 2017 CI.

                                      We use a script that overwrites the contents of the "WEB-INF/lib" folder with our dependencies. (Specifically, this is a Maven plugin that triggers when we run "Maven clean" on our "pom.xml" file. The project itself is not a Maven project, as that seems to bypass the "WEB-INF/lib" folder entirely which is not desirable.)

                                      Sometimes the files are locked, and our…

                                        I work with two monitors and I use for Java and Debug view different layouts of the opened views.
                                        It would be great if I can export these layouts to be restored when one of my colleagues mixed it up while sitting on my desk or to be imported in another workspace to have the same layout there as well
