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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. Make to able to reactive when a change occures due to computer name change

    What does this mean
    An internal error occurred during: "Registration".
    Invalid thread access

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  12. More usable Maven and Git integrations. The configuraton for both is in multiple places and it's very difficult to match up to a project.

    Configuring a Maven project via POM, project properties, preferences, archetype XM in metadataL, etc. gets very difficult to match to an already extant Maven project. A good, usable and complete Maven project settings which includes lifecycle mappings would help a lot.

  15. 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.

  17. The .metadata folder can reach titanic proportions

    The .metadata folder for a moderately sized maven projects can reach almost 2GB, probably more for large projects. On a PC with a SSD and limited HDD Space that is outragous. It would be nice if that folder could be made smaller (Also a UI option to cleanup the cached files could be helpful.)

  18. 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.

  19. UML module supporting or tolerating Java annotations

    Round-trip Java / UML techniques are quite useful in agile projects, and basic Java beans generally work quite well - but as soon as we start using Java annotations, things get dropped / missed / messed up and must be reconciled manually.

  20. 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.
