Ten Things I Dig About Xcode

Response to: Code completion in Java

The release notes (and my experience) state that code completion does not work in Java. My guess, and hope, is that it will in a future version.

I'm also finding that errors and warnings for my Java project aren't being displayed in either the "errors and warning" group or the gutter, as described in this article. For Obj-C, it's working, but no dice for Java.

But I can't even run a Java program that opens a window (Frame). Perhaps these problems are because I did an upgrade install versus an archive-and-install. I'll probably reinstall and see how that goes.

This is from just one day of playing with Panther, but I'd like to know if anybody else experienced these sorts of problems.

    I've been using XCode too for Java. Or rather I haven't. Sure would be nice if code completion worked (I know the Java keywords and don't need to be reminded) and errors were shown anywhere at all.

      Codewarrior 9 has made significant improvements. I'm glad Apple finally updted from version 8 to 9.0

      I can hardly wait for 10!

      so is that what they call 9? xCode? i think the original name (CodeWarrior) sounded much better.

    I don't think doing a clean reinstall will fox this problem, I installed clean and I can't get completion to work in java, which I imagine is for the reason you pointed out, the release notes say it doesn't work. My guess is they just didn't have time to write the code that searches for symbols in jar files, I hope its soon forthcoming though, until then, I'm sticking with Eclipse.

      Code completion does not work for Java. This is very disappointing. It would be nice if the author of the article had mentioned that he digs it but it doesn't really work, apparently, for anything but Objective C.
