is... 90% of times?). The new validation routines do not support, for
- dereferencing HTML form elements from scripts, i.e.:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
<input name="testInput" type="text">
- JSP tags inside <script> tags
The new JSDT tools seem smarter to recognize problems, but because of
these bugs the result is that my JSPs are now full of red marks because
of false errors.
Because of these problems, in general I find myself to hit the problem I
exposed some time ago here in the newsgroup about Webtools source
editing tools (especially the JSP editor): in real-world examples of web
WTP are not adeguate, unfortunately.
Yes, I know you need community help and I also know that criticisms have
to be constructive and that filing new bug reports and keeping on them
is the way to get things improved... however it's quite sad for me to
see that I have voted for more than 20 bugs in WTP that I consider
critical and no progress has been done even for a couple of years,
although I constantly check on them :-(
Please David, don't blame on me, if I say this it's because I love
Eclipse and I would like it to be better and better and I try to do my
best to support it... However in general I'm feeling like there's less
interest on improving it (the platform and some of its major plugins)
during the latest months... after all, the Visual Editor Project is
dead, the TPTP profiling tools seem to have difficulty on providing a
fruitful user experience (while they already are at version 4.5) and WTP
web development tools have been suffering from certain critical bugs for
years now... :-(
Maybe I just need to be said that the Eclipse ecosystem is still in good
health, although my worries...
Sorry for the outlet...
