Did exactly what I was looking for, syntax colouring in Java for the occasional time when I need to work on Java/C++ side by side in Vis Studio.

Thanks Sam!

This is a junk that doesn't do anything. Poorly written description that intends to deceive someone who is looking to test something quickly. This guy Harwell is a clown that wastes your time. Both this packages, Java Language Support, and PHP Language Support are junks that don't support anything. You can open your java files and php files and see some code... so what? IDIOT! I hate idiots who waste my time. I reported this guy for his deceptively named packages that a 12 years old can produce and he put them up online to waste your time! Curses!!!!!!!!!!! Idiot clown!

I reported this: This package doesn't support java. It doesn't do anything, no compile, no way to even start a project for java, not to mention debugging. It wasted my time, the whole day, trying to figure out just exactly what it does. This guy is a fraud. Remove this package.

The best tool I found that closet to real java ext to visual studio 2010 is here: http://improve.dk/compiling-java-in-visual-studio/

Hi ChristopherNemo, this extension only provides the features listed in the description. I never mentioned or suggested features such as a project system, compilation, or debugging. As you describe in your review, "You can open your java files and php files and see some code"; since this is not a feature provided with Visual Studio 2010 by default, I released this extension to help a select group of users who are after the specific features provided by this extension.

Thanks Sam! This works well for us and fills a small void. We have projects that contain Java and .Net code, and whilst we managed to drive the entire build from MSBuild, we didn't have a good environment for viewing the entire project from one tool. We do now and appreciate the effort to put his extension together.

Just wanted to say - thanks for this - just what I was looking for. Its great for just looking quickly at some java code from vs2010 without having to go through the mental context switch that using eclipse etc requires

  • "jar.exe" exited with code 1.
    2 Posts | Last post Fri 6:30 AM
    • I'm getting the following error when trying to build a Java project with VS2010. ""jar.exe" exited with code 1."
      
      I have the lastest Java SDK installed.
      
      I also had a previous error message on creating a new Java project which was fixed by installing NuGet.
      
      Any ideas? Thanks!
    • 	Error in call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_39\bin\jar.exe cf obj/Debug/ConsoleApplication4.jar -C obj/Debug/ pkg/Program.clas"
      
       should be as follows: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_39\bin\jar.exe cf obj/Debug/ConsoleApplication4.jar -C obj/Debug/ pkg/Program.class"
  • Can't create java project in vs2013
    2 Posts | Last post March 06, 2014
    • Whenever I try to create a java project in vs 2013 (by clicking new project and selecting one of the java templates), I get the following error: 
      
      "Error: this template attempted to load component assembly 'NutGet.VisualStudio.Interop, Version=1.0.0.0, Vulture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. For more information on this problem and how to enable this template, please see documentation on Customizing Project Templates."
      
      Any suggestions on how to solve this? Or is it a bug of the current release?
    • Can you report this on the project issue tracker for simplified discussion and progress tracking? Thanks!

    • I create Java console application from template. Build fails with no diagnostic:
      
      "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\bin\" 
      
      ------ Build started: Project: ConsoleApplication4, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------
      Done building project "ConsoleApplication4.javaproj" -- FAILED.
      
      ========== Build: 0 succeeded or up-to-date, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========
      
      I have JDK 1.7.0_51 64 bit installed. 
      
    • I am getting the same error, not sure why.
      
      ------ Build started: Project: FirstJavaProject, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------

    • Thanks for trying out this extension. Can you please report this issue here so it's easier to track progress towards a solution? https://bitbucket.org/sharwell/langsvcv2/issues
  • Java project doesn't work in VS2013
    3 Posts | Last post February 24, 2014
    • When I try and start an empty java project, I get the message "Could not find file 'C:\Users\{My account here}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\VTC\7e8ec19d2dca576753035b7aee565570\~PC\ProjectTemplates\Java\Windows\1033\JavaEmptyProject.zip\EmptyProject.javaproj'."
      
      The path is there, but the file name at the end is actually "JavaEmptyProject.javaproj" instead of "EmptyProject.javaproj". Seems like a minor oversight :)
    • Sorry for double post. If I try and rename the file "JavaEmptyProject.javaproj" to "EmptyProject.javaproj" it then gives me an error that it can't find "JavaEmptyProject.javaproj" haha. Seems I can't win here!
    • Hi Beannaich,
      
      Thanks for the report. I'll get this fixed for the next release. In the mean time, can you try using the Console Application project template to create your project? My testing was primarily with that. You can also try with the Class Library template, although it was less tested as well.
  • VS2010 restarts
    4 Posts | Last post February 20, 2014
    • I really like the Java Language Support entension, but I've been having problem with VS2010 restarting periodically when the Java Language Support entension is enabled.
      
      I was able to reproduce a specific problem that causes VS2010 to restart.
      
      Given a small Java program named foo.java containing the following text:
      
      public class foo {
       public void bar () {
        Object[][]ao2 =
       }
      }
      
      With the Java Language Support entension enabled, open the file in VS2010, and then go to the end of the line with the equal sign = and type an open curly brace {
      
      Then VS2010 will restart.
      
    • I'm also getting crashes in similar situations.
      
      If I disable the extension from the Extension Manager, I still get the syntax highlighting, but not the crashes; presumably the problem is in the outlining?
    • I've had the same issue with VS restarting as well. 
    • Thanks for the feedback. So far I have been unable to reproduce this issue with the latest version of the extension (1.0.8). Please let me know if you continue to see problems with this release.
  • Any plans for a VS2012 version

    • I know it's soon, but we follow the upgrade path pretty quickly these days. :D
    • Hi Theo, I have added support for this in the latest release of the extension (1.0.8). Thanks for your feedback. :)
  • How to...
    3 Posts | Last post February 20, 2014
    • Hi guys, I've downloaded that extension but I don't know how to create a single java file in VS. Please help me!
    • This package doesn't support java. It doesn't do anything, no compile, no way to even start a project for java, not to mention debugging. It wasted my time, the whole day, trying to figure out just exactly what it does. This guy is a fraud. Remove this package.
    • Hi Alex, I have added a few Item templates for Java code in the latest release (1.0.8). The previous releases did not contain any templates, as the extension at that time was only designed for opening existing .java files for viewing and very simple editing.
  • VS 2012 Support?

    • I Want Java Plugin Support For VS 2012 ............
      
      
    • I have added support for VS 2012 and 2013 in the latest release (1.0.8). Thank you for your feedback. :)
  • How to use it

    • Now that I've also installed this how do I make a Java Project; In VS2010 New Project-> I've got projects for languages c++,c#,vb,and python only but no java.
      If you know of any tutorials please tell.

    • Starting with version 1.0.8, I have added a set of project templates to this extension. Earlier releases did not have any special support for Java projects; it simply added the ability to open up a .java file in the editor.
  • Still active?
    1 Posts | Last post January 18, 2013
    • I was wondering if this project was still active or if it has been abandoned. If it is abandoned, any chance of releasing the source?
