Hi Forum,

I have recently downloaded eclipse 3.7 - Indigo.

When I open my project jsp files in the editor, I see that its plain file with no color code, and also ctrl+space doesn't work. Its really difficult developing jsps.

My old eclipse version - 3.2 - has better looks in jsp, with color code, ctrl+space and proper formatting.

Can anyone here, please let me know how do I get the same style of coding/developing in Indigo (version 3.7)? Any plugins if at all? or any links?



Thanks!Chinmay

Which Indigo package did you download? The JSP Editor only comes in the Java EE and BIRT packages by default. You can still add it from the Help menu, though.

Hi Chinmay,

With Eclipse Classic, go to Help > Install New Software.... In the Work with: dropdown, pick Indigo - http://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo. After some time, the features will be populated. Find the group Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development. Under that, you should find Eclipse Java Web Developer Tools. That's what you should need at bare minimum to use the JSP editor. You may want to grab Eclipse Java EE Developer Tools, as well. Then just progress through the wizard.

I'm having similar issues with eclipse indigo. I'm working on existing rather large project. I've installed the Web Tools plug in, but when I Ctrl-Shift-F to format my jsp file, javascript tags on the page are jumbled to a very broken state.

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
	function moveWindow () {
		var myAnchor = '<%=pageAnchor%>';
		if(myAnchor.indexOf('null')!=-1 ) {
			window.location.hash=" ";
			return;
		}
		window.location.hash="<%=pageAnchor%>";
		}
</script>


becomes:
	<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScr
		function moveWindow() {
			var myAncho
	r = '<%=pageAnc
		hor%>';
			if (myAnchor.indexOf('null') != -1) {
				window.location.hash = " ";
				return;
			}
			window.location.h
	ash="<%=pageAnc
		hor%>";
			}
</script>


What am I missing? Is there a way to configure the formatter with WTP? These files formatted fine in Galileo.

It does not sound like a similar issue, but it does sound like bug 358545.

http://bugs.eclipse.org/361553
http://bugs.eclipse.org/358545

It will be addressed in SR2.
