  2. "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…

  4. Easier to get to a file in the file system? (explorer/finder)

    Something nice would be if it was easy to go from the MyEclipse project area to open a file in the windows explorer.

  5. Persist the perspective layout

    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

  9. Could the toolbar be a bit simpler?

    When I have lots of MyEclipse components installed, the toolbar can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. Could the toolbar be somehow simplified or more applicable to my current work?

    b) generate java interface file when methods of the class marked "final"

    c) keyboard shortcuts for all source and refactoring commands, not just some of them

  12. Auto-generate builder pattern; and maybe other common patterns?

    I like to use the builder pattern when I have a class with a lot of different options. However, it is tedious to type it all up, even with copy-pasting the skeleton from elsewhere.

    At the very least the skeleton of the builder pattern could be easily generated automatically. But probably the whole thing could be generated as a starting point like "generate getters and setters" and "generate constructor".

    If we think about it there are probably a lot of other similar things (e.g., other patterns) that could be auto-generate to save time and make things easier / overcome language…

    planned  ·  Brian Fernandes responded

    I agree. We are working on this for our next major release, thank you for your notes.

  16. Have an ability to set the default editor for JSF as the MyEclipse JSP Editor

    I would like the default editor for JSF pages be the MyEclipse JSF Editor. I find the current visual edtior to be slow and does not provide additional useful content.

  17. Allow the change of Project Facets

    Whenever you set your project to a certain version of a facet, MyEclipse should be able to allow you to change the version. Example. (Changing from JSF 2.0 to 2.2 facet.)

    It should give you all the problems your project may have after you change so you can upgrade projects quickly.

  18. Full EMBER.js support

    Add Struts like editing support and templating support on Controller, View/ViewModel, and Data Models as Ember is using Convention over Configuration, MyEclipse can seamlessly help user to manage that. In addition add context sensitive like interllisense to the editor. An integrated compiler would also help in large system development.
