Kotlin Eclipse plug-in

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

JetBrains just released the first alpha version of the Kotlin Eclipse plug-in. The update site is:

https://teamcity.jetbrains.com/guestAuth/repository/download/Kotlin_EclipsePlugin/release.tcbuildtag/

You will need Luna to run it. It’s a bit rough around the edges, as you would expect from an Alpha, but it supports basic features:

  • Problems view (I miss this so much on IDEA).
  • Debugger.
  • A few quick fixes (e.g. “Replace ‘get’ with index operator).
  • Testing.
  • Auto imports.
  • Navigate to symbol.

Hopefully the Eclipse plug-in will soon catch up to IDEA’s already awesome support for Kotlin.
