I have been using Zend Studio for many years but am thinking of switching to Eclipse and now I'm making sure Eclipse provides equivalent features as in Zend Studio.

I have installed Eclipse IDE for PHP Developers 2019-12 (4.14.0) and found that the code assist for Javascript does not work. It simply shows a popup with "MISSING" for any codes. For example, when I entered "document.", the popup appears with "MISSING".

The project includes Javascript Resources. In [Preferences]-[Javascript]-[Editor]-[Content Assist]-[Advanced] , the following items are checked:
Basic proposals
Generic Javascript proposals
Other Javascript proposals
Template proposals

In the project properties, Include Path to Javascript lists:
ECMAScript Built-in Library
Javascript Web Project Support
ECMA 3 Browser Support Library

I have tried to delete .metadata folder to refresh it but it didn't solve the issue.

Code assist for PHP and CSS are working fine.
Could you guide me how to fix this?

Thanks,

I think this is a known bug. I found the related information at
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=504057

but still want to know if this bug will be fixed soon or since JSDT is not active, nobody will fix it? Then, should I use Wild Web Developer to make Code Assist work?

PDT still use JSDT for JavaScript validation/assist. They started refactoring to support ES6 and never, broke everything and mostly abandoned project. There are still some commits, but I'm not sure about future.

As far as I know, if you install Wild Web Developer, JSDT will handle assist from them. But remember that WWD require nodejs to work (it uses VSCode language servers in background).
