Planned updates include improved debugging, smarter code completion, deeper integration with cloud services and Kubernetes
To bring in new java capabilities, Microsoft has released a road map for the code editor updates. More than 1.5 million Java developers use Video Studio code now. Along with publishing the planned updates, Microsoft also highlighted the substantial improvements in 2021 like the Java 1.0 release of Language Support, a Gradle plugin extension release for Java, user experience improvements and other updates.
In 2022, Microsoft said that it has planned to improve on “inner loop” experience, code-completion suggestions, cloud-native development, build tools, performance and reliability, and provide various shortcuts for the user experience. There are other updates to improve the debugging experience that was included in the roadmap.
All-in-all the Microsoft roadmap reflects that the updates are focused on improving overall performance and reliability. Java Language Server will have updates in a similar direction. Now, as a java developer the chances of the Java Language Server being unresponsive will be reduced.
The new Microsoft roadmap also includes the Java 18 support. The other goals that were published as a part of the roadmap are:
Improved testing for Junit for an overall better experience of package import and project creation that is related to JavaFX apps and support in Live Share of VS Code Java
Easily creating Spring components for Spring Bo
Improvement in the Maven extension
