Language Support for Java™
Our first extension was published in 2016. Given our strong history with all things Java™, Language Support for Java™ for Visual Studio Code was the obvious choice for our first foray into the VS Code world. This extension is built on the Language Server Protocol, and provides language support for Java™ through the Eclipse™ JDT Language Server.
It makes developing Java™ applications with VS Code much easier and enjoyable. Using Eclipse™ JDT under the covers means that the experience you have with VS Code is exactly the same as what you’d get with Eclipse™. It provides full support for Maven pom.xml projects, basic Gradle Java™ project support, code completion, Javadoc hovers, code outlining, highlighting, etc. etc - everything you need. Like everything we do, the extension is completely open source. You can follow developments on this extension through our Twitter feed.
