JavaFX Eclipse Plug-In version 1.3.4 is now available.
Release notes: http://exadel.org/javafxplugin-releasenotes
I was quite happy with 1.3.3, what it did it did very well. Especially its speed at incremental compiling, Netbeans is sooo slooow, if you need to do lots of cosmetic adjustments on a large project Netbeans is totally unusable. The Exadel plugin (1.3.3) saved my sanity.
1.3.4 doesn't work so well though: it is noticeably slower at compiling and running the app and it degenerates, getting slower and slower at every launch, I eventually have to restart Eclipse to go back to reasonable performance. Also I get the "Main Class Not Found" bug advertised elsewhere on this list, some magic makes it work again, but it is unreliable and annoying. Autocompletion (ctrl-space) looks completely broken too.
BTW: Import reorganization doesn't work on nested classes.
Finally, sometimes the plugin (any release) looses its marbles on a file and code formatting and syntax coloring won't work anymore, you need to close the file and reopen it to get things to work again.
Aside from these negatives, it is very useful and promising and I'd love to see more progress on it, especially for type awareness, autocompletion, "Go To Source", etc. A working debugger would really be a plus :)
Thanks for the feedback, we very much appreciate it.
I created two issues to address the problems you listed:
We are working on making things better and more stable with every release.
>>BTW: Import reorganization doesn't work on nested classes.
Can you provide an example that doesn't work?
Hi, sorry for the delay...
I have a class A which declares some other utility class inside: A.B.
If I import A and use A.B and then optimize imports the import of A is gone.
