    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.

  2. Please add react support

    react is amazing and in my opinion much more better than angular.Please add its support to myeclipse ide

  4. "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…

  5. Stop turning random stuff on when I update.

    This is the second time after a CI update in the 2016 version that stuff has broken. If I want to turn a feature on I'll turn it on. First you automatically turned on some "live preview" crap that broke random crap, and now I have to deal with a bunch of .jsp files complaining after another update. Stop. Turning. Stuff. On. Automatically.

    Part of the reason people bother using this IDE over IntelliJ is because it's cheaper. If the time our team has to spend fixing crap after an IDE update out weighs the cost of your competitors, we'll…

    Kody, I agree that having an update break your workspace is extremely frustrating. However, live preview was the only feature in recent times that was enabled that could affect deployment. This was enabled only once, so if turned off, it would stay off, forever.

    With the 2016 CI 6 release, we fixed a bug, which, in some cases, could have prevented JSPs from being indexed and validated. Now that it has been fixed, perhaps you’re seeing these validation errors only now? Other than this one case, i can’t think of anything else that would lead to problems.

    Now, if these errors are false negatives, that’s another matter that should be addressed, of course. Could you please report the issue on our forums or feel free to comment further here and we’ll do our best to resolve it.

  8. Keep "Exclude from validation" after project clean

    Being able to select a folder, right click and select exclude from options is a great feature. It would be great for it to remain in force a project clean. After a clean, in order to make it take affect again, one needs to uncheck it and then check it again. I think this is also a problem after closing a project and reopening it.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    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.

  12. 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...
