If you downloaded or updated to MyEclipse 3.8.4 after January 29th 10:45am (GMT -6 hours), you *do not* need to apply this quickfix and may stop reading this now.
Shortly after the release of MyEclipse 3.8.4, we noticed a few bugs that were annoying enough to warrrant the issuance of a quickfix to address them. In addition to releasing the quickfix, we've updated all the installers and the update site to include the fixes, so if you've upgraded or downloaded after the date posted specified above, you *do not* need to apply this fix.
Please do *not* attempt to install it on any version of MyEclipse other than 3.8.4.
This fix addresses the following problems that have been reported on the forums and internally:
1400 MyEclipse > Internet Tools > Web Browser preference screen persistence
1132 Quick Comment/Uncomment in JSP Editor uses HTML comments
1409 Any time a file is saved, cursor jumps back to start of file
1411 JSP Source Lookup Failing in WebLogic
Please note which version of Eclipse / MyEclipse you're using to ensure you download the appropriate quickfix as they are different and not interchangable.
The quickFix for MyEclipse 3.8.4 for Eclipse 3.0.x is located at:
The quickFix for MyEclipse 3.8.4 Beta Release for Eclipse 3.1M4 is located at:
Note: The location to unzip the quickfix into is your MyEclipse install directory, not the Eclipse install directory.
To install it, exit MyEclipse and unzip the quick fix archive directly into <MyEclipse install directory>. The plugins are archived with paths that will place them in the subdirectory "eclipse/plugins". You should choose to overwrite files, when prompted. Please note, the quickfix contains only the subsets of several plugins that changed, not the complete plugin so please don't choose an extraction method that overwrites the entire plugin directory. On Windows, simply unzipping with WinZip or using the XP file explorer to copy the folders into the plugins directory will "do the right thing".
Once the quickfix is installed, start eclipse with -clean command line option, one time, to insure installation of the new jars. (ie. eclipse.exe -clean). On subsequent restarts you do not need to use -clean, just the first time after you apply the fix. Here's an FAQ for setting up -clean if you need more info: http://www.myeclipseide.com/FAQ+index-myfaq-yes-id_cat-30.html#343
