Polished first look.

But bytecode injection, strange license and thoughtful limitations makes you regret installing this very fast.

If you are searching for something free, just stay away from this one.

When I try to specifically download "Webclipse Suite", "Webclipse JSjet" and "Webclipse REST", the download not started for them, however and other components, is able to install!
I use Eclipse Oxygen.

Before installing this plugin, I was doing the normal debugging of websites by launching in eclipse, and then debugging in the browser the javascript. I installed this plugin and the website stopped loading from the local server (constant 404's) along with their annoying hover-over that appeared on the page blocking some of my content. Nothing I could find would configure the tool to do anything useful. I uninstalled it, and everything works fine now.

My advice, if you already have a method to debug - stick with it. As I don't see how this plugin can make that any better.

First off, sorry you ran into this! Certainly usual to have a failure like this --

Regarding the JavaScript debugging -- we do have integrated support for JavaScript debugging in Eclipse allowing you to set breakpoints in Eclipse and hit them from your external web page, but that is normally something you opt into. We haven't had any reports of Webclipse causing 404 errors on page load and would be very curious as to why you are hitting that.

Our CodeLive "hover" allows you to jump back into your code from the page, as well as make real time HTML and CSS changes. You can hide it by clicking the top of the panel, or just turn it off in your Servers view. That said, this is a very heavily used feature so it does seem to provide value to others. Sorry it didn't work well for you. :(

We would love to understand why in your particular flow the JavaScript debugging you are doing in the browser is not working. Mind sharing some details in our forums? Including the type of server you are running, the version of Eclipse, the type of project/technologies, etc.?

What a trick. This is free only for a year, as said on https://www.genuitec.com/products/webclipse/

> Completely free to use for the first year as part of the Early Adopter Program. Join now!

That is only free while it is beta. You pay me for that.

Thanks for taking a look! Apologies if we didn't make it clear enough, but absolutely you can use Webclipse in an ongoing basis for free as part of participation in the Early Adopter Program. Specifically because we appreciate users that come on board and provide valuable feedback. This is not a bait-and-switch in that we then turn around and charge you for being an early adopter.

From our early adopter page:

Active members in the program will have their license renewed at no cost. An active member periodically answers questions about Webclipse (no more than every 1—2 months)...

The bar I promise is very low! We absolutely want to reward our early adopters, and just by answering 5-10 questions over the course of a year, you can keep using Webclipse for the next year for free, and so on.

Thanks for reporting the issue, I've put this over into the forums for you.

From the top navigation bar, simply access Forums and then you can go to the forums specifically for Webclipse.
