Aug 24, 2014

Eclim has finally been released with Eclipse Luna support. Please note however that scala support is disabled in this release. I tried waiting for a final release of ScalaIDE 4.0.0 for Luna, but I don't want to hold up the rest of eclim any longer. If you want to use eclim's scala support, you'll need to install the ScalaIDE 4.0.0 milestone and build eclim from the master git branch.

May 07, 2014

Release of eclim for indigo users.

Apr. 12, 2014

Eclim has been updated to fix an issue on Windows that could prevent many features from working.

Apr. 06, 2014

This release includes many bug fixes and refinements as well as a rewrite of eclim's python support to utilize pydev instead of rope.

Jul. 27, 2013

The previous eclim installer for Kepler was still pointing at the Juno update site. This release remedies that.

Jul. 21, 2013

The focus of this release is to bring eclim fully up to date with Eclipse Kepler support. The installer for eclim 2.3.0 now requires that you install against Kepler.

Jul. 14, 2013

This is primarily a bug fix release with a few new features. Unless some critical error is found, this will be the last release targeting Juno. The next release will likely target Kepler though this release should work fine on Kepler as well, with the exception of scala support which has not been tested. Indigo support will continue but will likely end with the release of Luna, possibly sooner.

For this reason php support has been temporarily removed from this release and will hopefully return soon after the pdt team release a Ganymede (3.4) compatible version.

Another major change worth noting, is that eclim is now licensed under the GPLv3. This was done to give eclim the freedom to integrate with other GPL projects in the future.

Several new additions over the past couple weeks:

  • Java code completion: Integrated into Vim via Vim 7's new "User Defined Completion".
  • Added eclim command line support for creating and updating projects, including Vim support for editing Eclipse .classpath files and updating Eclipse upon writing of those files.
  • Integrated nailgun to greatly improve the command line client performance.
  • Started documenting eclim and its features.

With the addition of these features I'm going to stop adding new functionality for the time being and focus on testing and ensuring that everything works as expected on Windows.

2005-08-21

Code navigation / searching is done! Most of the Vim integration for searching is done as well. The only thing missing is viewing code for results that are found in a jar file that have no corresponding source attachment. I may end up doing what Eclipse appears to do, which is to use javap to display the class and method signatures. That or I'll use jad to decompile the whole source. My only issue with jad, is that it is not up to date with the 1.5 byte code.

I also have automated importing done as well. The eclim server request just returns a list of possible results to import for a given request and the editor (Vim in this case) handles prompting the user and updating the code.

Note

The Vim integration now requires Vim 7. Even though Vim 7 is still alpha, I haven't had any major issues with it and the new additions to the Vim scripting language are just too good to pass up.

My next step is to start documenting everything and testing on a Windows environment to ensure there aren't any compatibility issues.

After that I should be ready to put out a preliminary release. I'm trying to be very careful about releasing anything too soon. The last thing I want it to scare anyone off with a broken project that doesn't seem to work properly.

2005-08-11

Sourceforge site is up! Now it's just a matter of getting the ball rolling again.

I'm hoping to have source code navigation working by the end of next week. This includes the ability to simply hit <enter> on a class name, method name, method call, etc. to jump to its declaration. Basically I want to replace my previous Vim plug-in with the new Eclipse one.

Before I put out any releases though, I want to have a comprehensive set of documentation. For the first few releases, setup will probably be pretty manual, with most of it occurring through the Eclipse interface. Going forward, I want to move more of that functionality into Vim.
