Thanks for the response lithom. The Run As… Eclipse popup menu (right click with context on a .kt source file with a main( ) method) creates a Java Run Configuration with the name of the file, capitalizing the first character of the file name, dropping the .kt suffix and adding Kt and putting that into the “Main class:” field in the Java Run Configuration. So your suggested of adding “Kt to the main class name” is the magic elixir. Is this documented anywhere?
I have no interest in learning Gradle. The integration of the build system into Eclipse (for both Java and C, and possibly others) is one of the advantages of Eclipse over XCode et al. I would like to keep the workflow of my programmers as unchanged as possible if we move to Kotlin.
Again I ask -
Is JetBrains committed to making Kotlin work well in Eclipse? How and where do we programmers get support? Is the Eclipse plug-in open source? Can we contribute to it?
If this is not the appropriate forum to get an answer to those questions, please direct to me a place or person that is appropriate.
