Eclipse tools for HTML5/CSS and JS


It’s been a fun week playing around with HTML/CSS this week, so far very little JavaScript.

Installing the tools in Eclipse was no problem, but making a simple project containing HTML5 and some javaScript work proved to be tricky, at least for me as a mac user. It turns out that in Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (Juno 4.2), trying to run a project that is making use of the: “HTTP preview at LocalHost”, encounters the following problem: “Could not find JRE executable”.

This does not occur and the same project runs fine in Eclipse IDE for JavaScript Web Developers (Helios), after patching bug 293398 which can be downloaded from:

Anyway, hopefully none of you encountered  this problem, and if you did, we’ll work around it this week.
