Eclipse Wild Web Developer: Release notes

This page describes the noteworthy improvements provided by each release of Eclipse Wild Web Developer.

Next release...


📅 Release Date: Mid-March, 2020


📅 Release Date: January 20th, 2020

Proxy honored for XML resolution

The proxy settings are now used by the XML edition assistance (eg to resolve XSD elements). The network settings of Eclipse IDE are used, and if the network settings are blank, the related System Properties of the running/host Eclipse process itself are forwarded to XML resolution. This fixes issue #192.

ESLint and Typescript-ESLint support

ESLint is now supported in Wild Web Developer, providing both code diagnostics and quick fixes (when available) for JavaScript and Typescript files.

To enable ESLint for a project, a .eslintrc, tsconfig.json as well as the required node_modules must reside within the project's directory (or in a parent directory). The required node_modules can be installed with npm install eslint@6.0.0 @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin@2.7.0 @typescript-eslint/parser@2.7.0 @typescript@3.6.4.

An example .eslintrc can be found here and a example tsconfig.json can be found here

Improved XML language server extensibility

Extension point to add jars to XML Language Server has been augmented to allow passing a dynamic resolution of multiple jars.


📅 Release Date: 19th November, 2019

XML language server extension support

XML-LS extension jars can now be integrated into Wild Web Developer through the xmllsExtension extension point, allowing additional functionality to be provided from the language server.

The extension jars must implement the IXMLExtension interface and must register with Java Service Provider Interface (SPI) mechanism in the /META-INF/services/ file. To use the extension point, create an xmllsExtension extension in a plug-in project and set the path to the location of the extension jar (which must reside within the plug-in project).

Usage example:
