  5. what the f*ck did you do to my eclipse??? I want my old eclipse back!!

    I shut down eclipse and saw a note that webeclipse was being updated. When I started up everything was different.

    I use eclipse for work and don't have time to figure all this out. I do a lot of standard java development and 5% angular but now angular has taken over. How do I get back to my old theme !!!!

  7. "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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  16. In JSP Editor, Only Give Context Support For Valid CSS Tags

    When you are working in a JSP, for any element you are offered the universe of possible attributes. Wouldn't it be nice if you had MyEclipse notice which element you were actually adding an attribute to and have it limit to the actual set of valid attributes for that element?

  17. Global perspectives

    I change workspaces a lot but I'd like to carry over my 'perspective' from one workspace to another, and in a seamless fashion too.

  18. NoSQL Perspective

    Make a new Perspective just for the various NoSQL databases. You have a database viewer for relational dbs. For example, for Cassandra you would have help for all the various sub libraries such as Thrift, Astyanax and all the other flavors.

  19. 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…

  20. Support Remote deployment and control of a GlassFish 4 Application Server

    It is not possible in the current MyEclipse Blue version 12.0.0.0 to remotely deploy, source level debug, or stop and start a network instance of a GlassFish 4 service, (like you can with WebSphere) and we would very much like to see this added as a feature set.
