IDE support for javascript and sapui5 beta?

41 Views

Hi,

Myself and several others (@DJ Adams ++) have tried to get the eclipse IDE setup for sapui5 development.

I've downloaded the "Eclipse IDE for JavaScript Web Developers" which includes JSDT http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/jsdt/

However, I've not been able to get much benefit from this both from a syntax and code completion point of view.

After including the sapui5 js files to code completion path, the eclipse system will typically crash the next time I use the completion (OutOfMemoryException).

Even after increasing memory to the JVM of eclipse and significantly reducing which sapui5 js files I include it doesn't work.

Eclipse will hang for a long time, before it comes back with no results (at least it doesn't crash completely).

Any hints on how to get this working?

Other IDEs we should use instead that work well?

Regards

Dagfinn
