I did not manage to add Java9 support to the Eclipse Scout M7 EPP via Marketplace (as described above) or via P2 update site http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.6-P-builds/

Error messages:

hello
good morning to all
Try to fill your new ide to test the Java version 9, but was useless.
Will not let me create a class of any kind.
I get the error provider "jrt" not found
It is that the JDK version 9 because there is no jre.
As you work on this version of Eclipse projects.
Thank you very much for your time and dedication.

Hi Mario,

Eclipse Mars does not include support for Java 9. That's where this update (Eclipse Java™ 9 Support (BETA) for Mars) is needed. Please update this on top of existing Mars update, that should help. Also please make sure you run the IDE with JRE 9, which provides the JRT implementation.

Regards,
Jay
