  1. 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

    • MyEclipse Servers Enhancement

      A common painful task is creating multiple named instances of the same server. I just did this for MyEclipse 2014 where I needed a WebTier instance of Tomcat and a MidTier instance, each listening on their own ports. The current MyEclipse plugin does not support this but it can be done through the Run Configuration. Actually, once I figured it out it was not to difficult but I'm sure I will have forgotten it by the time I upgrade to the next release

        Jim, though we haven’t touched this feature in ages – we’ve reworked our sever support in MyEclipse 2015. Doing what you describe should now be a lot more straightforward as we support multiple connectors to the same server without the need for run configurations.

        The first release in our MyEclipse 2015 CI stream is here: http://genuitec.com/t/u/me2015dl
        Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

      • 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.

        • Improved mobile development capabilities

          Support latest versions of Cordova and jQuery Mobile. Provide plugin support similar to Phone Gap Build and others. Offer additional mobile application templates for phones and tablets.

            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
