Jboss Plugin For Eclipse Neon

When the Eclipse Neon release came out, I was excited to get going with it. Neon is the latest version of Eclipse with interesting features like PHP 7 support and Web UI Builder. The Eclipse marketplace has some plugins which worked with Neon. But jBPM plugin was not one of them. It wasn’t even close! Actually, jbpm plugin for eclipse has a few regressions as well. It was time for me to write a new plugin bundling jbpm dependency in it.

JBoss Eclipse Plug-in is the complete IDE for the JBoss Middleware platform. You keep your favorite features from IntelliJ IDEA, and add enhancements that are only in JBoss Tools.

One of the most important commands to be aware of when working with Eclipse is the Java Compile command. With this, you can compile all classes by a single click and analyze them for any error or warning.
