AutoTagging For Java Didn't Work - How To Do It Manually?


SlickEdit 2011 (v16.0.3.0 64-bit)
Linux Mint 21.1
Configuration Directory: /home/steve/.slickedit/16.0.3/

I have the existing installation above.  For some reason AutoTagging never worked for Java.

This is what I get with Tools > Tag Files:

The JDK is in my PATH:

--- Code: ---Mint21.1VeraCinnamon5.6.6> echo $PATH

--- End code ---

How can I get SlickEdit to setup for Java the way it detected and setup for C?

Thanks for any clues.

Recognize first that you are using a version of SlickEdit that was shipped 10 years before Java 18, so this might be good time to upgrade.

But you can manually create a Java tag file.  Tools > Tag Files > New..., then select Java as the language.  I don't recall if v16 had the guided dialog for creating a language specific tag file, if not, just create the empty tag file, then click on "Add Files" and add src.jar from your JDK installation directory.

That worked!  Thank you!
