Actually I love the idea to be able to write Java in VS. The only thing that is really missing is Intellisense implementation.
I just inspected the repository and there seem quite a lot lines that relate to Intellisense. Unfortunately I'm somehow not able to get the extension working from your source code (some ccrewrite errors), so I'll just ask:
I've installed this on VS 2010 Pro and VS 2012 Premium on Win7 x64. Downloaded presumably the latest extension vsix, but the version reported in VS Help/About is 1.0, not 1.1.
I don't see any background highlighting at breakpoints as described although the breakpoint line indicator seems to work correctly.
Project configuration > Application > Startup object apparently can't be set. The dropdown contains only (Not Set) and can't be edited.
I can't access a class in a library project from the main function in an app project. App and library classes are in same package and build correctly copies the library jar to the app's Debug folder. The debugger starts the app, but attempting to use the class in the library thows NoClassDefFoundError. Is the library class not found because the manifest in its jar file contains only version information? If so, how do I modify the manifests in this environment?
The last problem is surely my inexperience with Java, but it would be nice to have Documentation (or alternately a downloadable example project) that shows how to tie together code in multiple projects in this environment.
All that said, thanks for a pretty cool extension.

Unfortunately (at least for potential users of this extension), Microsoft does not allow third parties to create extensions which can be installed in the Express editions of Visual Studio. Please consider removing this vote because there really is no way for me to address this concern.
Spot on! Instantly provides syntax highlighting for Java. Took a little tweaking to get to my tastes. Would it be possible to import settings from C++ (or other text editor) that is already set up? Such as tab settings etc.?
Personally, I use this extension for editing rather than compile/debug so I'd be more interested in code completion, code auto-formatting, etc. being implemented to bring the features in line with the C++ editor.

After some testing and fixing some problems i got it work - Debugger works fine, highlight is basically implemented. Anyways I'm missing the Codecompletion - If that would be integrated it will be perfect for me

Thank you for the package, it has proven to be an asset. We have no need to compile the code in VS 2013, since it would not make sense. I like the features that provide the ability to write java code into VS 2013.
Good work! please let me know if you are planning to adding additional features.
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.

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.
Hello, I installed the plugin correctly, and created a new project which is a Console Application project.
I added the basic "Program" class in the debug section and the debugger launches, but the it displays this very quickly (I had to reflex printscreen it) :
I have absolutely no idea what this means.
I have Windows 7 professionnal 64 bit.
Thank you for reading this :)
What do you mean? Your question is very general so answering it is very hard. You can open many different types of projects in Visual Studios. Example: C++, Java, Python, x86 Assembly, etc.
Check the requirements on the visual studios website for specific file extensions.
I am guessing you are talking about java. If so, it should be the same type of project files as a C++ or any other coding project, except for the fact that it contains '.class' and '.java' files in it.
***I think maybe I misunderstood your question. You can start a new application in the File tab. I would select create an empty project (in the java section) as this will allow you best flexibility. But I don't think you would be wrong choosing "console application" as everything is done in the console with java anyways (i.e. you can do a system.out.println very easily). Or for that matter, it can all be done in the console.
My apologizes if I misunderstood your question, but your question was very non-descriptive.
Yes you can make an android apps in java but you have to have a special environment to do so. A quick google search can yield you the answers.
Eclipse has a nice android environment. I haven't made any android apps so I am not sure if Visual Studios can do this or not. I would stick do an environment that is already setup for you, so do a google search and you will see.
when I go to run the debugger I get "this preview version of the java debugger only supports starting execution in a named class"
If I try to build the solution I get "The target "build" does not exist in this project"
What can I do? If the product cannot compile, build, run the debugger, etc. what does it do?
I had this same problem but I figured it out.
Do what it says, go into the Debug tab and then go down and click "'PROJECT_NAME_HERE' Properties"
Then click the "Debug" tab on the side and then you will see "Start Class within project:" radio button. Make sure it is clicked and then in the text field along side it type in the class name that has you main method in it.
**Remember, if your main method is within a package you must type the package name then forward slash ("/") and then your class name (with the main method).**
For example: if you start a new console application, you should get a basic hello world console application. Since the basic console hello world application has the main method class in a package (called "pkg"), you have to put in the "Start Class within project" field: "pkg/Program"
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!
This was fixed as described in the following issue, but is not yet part of a release:
Can you post future issues on the issue tracker? I don't normally get notified of comments or replies here.
I'm using VS2013 and i have updated jdk from 1.7 64bit to 1.8 32bit. I also update the path. My code is successfully compile with jdk 1.8, but the console run with jdk 1.7 command ? what should i do ?
sorry for bad english
I noticed that when I debug/run a file, a classpath is being specified (the jar file built), and this is causing my existing classpath to be ignored (I even added an extra cp command to the command line options, but that doesn't work either). Is there I way I can append entries to the classpath override for debug/run? I'm willing to edit the configuration files, if necessary.
I cannot debug my Java project as it contains additional referenced jar files (added as Reference using the UI) and when calling the debugger these jar files are not passed as classpath to the java.exe.
Compiling is working fine as they are passed to javac, but not to java when debugging/testing.
