Java 8 users:
If you are living on the edge with JDK8 b75 or later, you'll need the latest nightly builds of e(fx)clipse since starting with b75 JavaFX will be on the extension classpath of your JDK8/JRE8. For autocompletion to work properly in this case, you need to modify your installed JRE such that the Javadoc location for JavaFX points to a local Javadoc resource as shown in this screenshot. We are going to find a better solution for this once the source code is shipped with the JDK.
