Re: [eclipse-dev] Timeframe for Cheetah JDK 1.5 integration [wd-vc]

We are currently working on the Java 5.0 implementation. It will be ready when it will be ready. The best way to help us is to report problems you can see while using Eclipse.
For the second error you get, we already got a bug report about it, but no test case to be able to reproduce and fixe it. If you have a small test case showing the problem, please reopen bug 55950 ( https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=55950 ) and add the test case.

Hi!

I am working on project that would benefit very much from the template features in JDK 1.5.
I tried Eclipse 3.0 with Cheetah 06 it works fine for many cases, but Errors like:


java.lang.ClassCastException: org.eclipse.jdt.internal.compiler.lookup.ParameterizedTypeBinding

or:

An internal error occurred during: "Debug".
java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -41
java.lang.String.substring(Unknown Source)
org.eclipse.jdi.internal.GenericSignature.getTypeParameters(GenericSignature.java:76)



make impossible to work in a more complex project, with a lot of class using template parameters
and inheritance.


I know that the Cheeta is work in progress and of corse still has issues which are not solved jet,
but I would like to know what the release plan for cheetah is to be able to make a decission
if it is better to wait for improved versions of cheetah or stick to JDK 1.4.


Thanks Thomas
