I stumbled on Kotlin quite by accident, but I quite liked some ideas behind it (particularly automatic getters & setters which has been a long pet-peeve of mine), so I’ve decided to give it a shot.
My IDE of choice is Eclipse so I’ve installed Kotlin plugin from here: https://kotlinlang.org/docs/tutorials/getting-started-eclipse.html
Unfortunately I’ve run into issues that are show-stoppers for me and I’d like to clarify if this is the current state of the plugin or if maybe I’m doing something wrong?
Specifically I have problems with Javadocs non-availability in code assist – both when using F2 (aka ‘Open class, method, or variable information (tooltip text)’) and when using code completion (Ctrl-Space).
First examples where it works (and how it should work) – for example, F2 in Kotlin code works if you use Java class:
However if you do the same for the Kotlin reference (from within Kotlin class) – nothing opens:
If you try to open Kotlin reference from Java class – it shows that there’s no Javadoc:
Similarly there’s no Javadoc popup when using code completion – e.g. referencing Java in Java (example of how it should be):
But it Kotlin you don’t get Javadoc if you try to reference Java class:
… or Kotlin class:
This kind of makes Kotlin impossible to use for me so like I mentioned in front I wonder if this is the current state or if there’s some configuration/installation problem on my end?
