Eclipse 2020-09 needs Java 11 as a minimum version to run on. This seems to cause problems when using theses plugins. For example when creating a new WebSphere 8.5 server I get a popup: "IBM JRE Warning - An attempt was made to use a WebSphere Application Server specific function, which is only supported on JRE 6.0, 7.0 or 8.0.

This plugin is not compatible with Eclipse v4.17 (2020-09) which supports only Java 11.
Is there a plan to fix this?

Some plugin files have long file pathname and they exceed Windows 256 pathname length limitation, this makes it difficult to move files around, you have to use special tools to cope with it , would you please remedy this in new release, thanks!

I can´t deploy/publish maven and gradle projects. Does the plugin support these types of projects? How could I make it work?

To workaround "Could not initialize class com.ibm.ws.ffdc.FFDCFilter" Run Eclipse on IBM Java JRE.
Submitted by Semaj Mising name on Tue, 2016-11-22 16:22
The IBM JAVA JRE from WebSphere 8.5 is 1.6. Eclipse Neon requires 1.8 JRE. So, cannot run it.
Any other suggestion?

The application server stops randomly and with the IBM Support we found out that the stop for the application server is sent from an local address.
It isn't stopped by myself.
If I work for ours with my applications on the WAS it works perfect, but then it could be that the server all 5 Minutes is stopped and I have to restart it.
With this output we could see that the shutdown is sent from local:

Is there a way to get a debug log from Plugin or can you give me a hint what I have to do that this doesn't happen?

Getting An internal error occurred during: "Publishing to WebSphere Application Server traditional V8.5 at localhost...". Could not initialize class com.ibm.ws.ffdc.FFDCFilter error whenever I restart my server. Only way to resolve I could find is to restart eclipse.

Generate web service router is not available in ejb file context
Submitted by Hisham Ragheb on Sun, 2016-02-28 05:30
When I right click my ear project in eclipse and choose to run my application the application is published and deployed on the server but web services are not published. I know in webspehere to publish my web services I must run endPtEnabler over my ear file before installation on the server to amend the ear file and add required websphere artifacts for web services.
As a work around for now, I had to generate the ear and apply endPtEnabler, and I wrote jython script to be used in eclipse run configuration to install/update the application, However, this is painful to do with every change since changes are not hot deployed and I had to install the ear and run the jython script for every change to be updated on the server.
Is there a way to configure eclipse plugin to publish web services directly when running the application through Run in the application context??
