Employ Scala's Native Compiler in Scala for NetBeans
>>> Updated 3 hours later Fixed document displaying and go to declaration for Java element. Please update to Scala Editing version 1.1.4 ======
Well, it's a fairly long time after I latest blog about Scala for NetBeans. I was busy on several things, and can only work on this project on my spare time.
The good news is that I've integrated Scala's native compiler into this handy plugin, it means that the error messages shown in the editor will be the same as building now. And, the auto-completion feature is totally rewritten too, which also use AST tree that was created by Scala's native compiler to get all the candidate content assistant items.
The only problem is that the Java's document comments and offset to be go to when press CTRL + Click does not work properly yet, I have several way to resolve it, but I'm looking for a best way.
Another exciting news is that I've been invited to join NetBeans Dream Team, and of course, I accepted this invitation.
I'm planning to get Scala plugin for NetBeans to beta release in August, which will be compatible with NetBeans 6.5
