Title: Documentation says there is a Build->Java Properties and Java Live Errors
Post by: rowbearto on October 15, 2018, 05:11:41 pm
I was trying to find out how to use "Java Live Errors".

I went to the documentation, in help index I searched "live error" and double clicked on "Java Live Errors".

The docs here say that I should do Build->Java Options.

However there is no "Java Options" item in the Build menu.

If I go to Tools->Options->Languages->Application Languages->Java

I see "Compiler Properties", but I don't see anywhere here to enable Live Errors.

If I search for "live" in the tools->options search text, there are no hits.

You have to have a Java project open in order for there to be a Build->Java Options menu item.

I’m using a Maven java project. Shouldn’t this apply for Maven Java? How to enable live errors for maven java?

Sounds like it’s not supported yet. Can’t say if it’s real hard or easy to add.

Looking at it, I'd say it's a fair amount of work, even if I restrict it to just Maven and not the other new project types that support Java.  So this will have to be future work, not a fix for this release.  Until then, we can note the restrictions in the docs.
