View Full Version : Eclipse Plugin issues sec-1.1.0

10 Dec 2012, 8:19 AM

I recently installed the plugin and try to use it with an ongoing project.
There are several issues i noticed with it (might be a vjet problem and not the sencha plugin, ore maybe i did not fully understand how to use it)

a) How does VJET "learn" about the existence of my classes/files, does it just scan all the files in the project or does it look for the "requires" property. I ask this because some of my classes are just not "visible" to VJET

b) i had a case where a file contained several warnings. If the lines with warning were commented, then the class appeared in autocomplete, if not then it was not there. (not to mention i had to do a VJET Validate on the entire source for it to work after i commented those lines)

c) Sometimes when the editor starts, it just says Ext is not defined, sometimes a "VJET Validate" on the entire source seems to fix it (but it seems random/unstable)

d) It is not very robust when it comes to alternateClassName, singleton
For example i would like to have something like this

Ext.define('APP.util.Convert', { singleton: true, alternateClassName: 'APP.convert'

and i want APP.convert to be recognized

e)I have some class declarations where some of the properties (renderers are set like this)

renderer: APP.somesingletonclass.aFunction
and i get a lot of warnings like this "Cannot use type type::APP without active needs"
it would be nice to get rid of them (this is probably related to #c and singletons not being handled )

f) When defining models there are warnings like:
Property fields hides property of its parent type Ext.data.Model
Can these warning be removed somehow using VJET DOC comments?

g) for some overrides i do on extjs classes i get the warning
Overwriting method batch should have same signature as the method in super class
although the declaration of the function is copied from extjs code exactly.

I would be grateful if someone could answer at least some of my questions above so that i can get rid of hundreds of warnings in my code and get back to writing the actual code :)

Thank you

I have also noticed that in classes that are not visible to VJET, the code folding does not work.

These messages are the result of an invalid semantic validation condition in VJET itself. I came across it in a project I'm using VJET for. You can get more information about the cause here:


Judging from the changes documented in the vjet GitHub project there has been no attempt to fix this issue by the VJET team which is a shame.
