Re: [wtp-dev] JSDT and Nashorn : Java + JavaScript

Mixing of Java and _javascript_ is not supported on either JDT's Java editor or on the JSDT _javascript_ editor. 
I am not aware of any plans to support this scenario on either of the projects.

Most of the references to _javascript_ with Eclipse seems to be about Node.JS. I'm not finding many references to development toward supporting Nashorn where we need content assistance for types and members for Java and _javascript_ in the same file, or at least to be able to jump from references between .JS and .Java files.

I separate code maintenance from debugging here. My first priority would be to simply edit code, moving fluidly between languages. For me it's a much lower priority to be able to debug through that code at runtime. Of course we want it wall, but if we can just write good code to start then the requirement for debugging support later is significantly reduced.

Where can I find others discussing the state of this special kind of polyglot development with Eclipse?

Now moving to Neon2.
