Re: The GWT Eclipse Plugin stopped working in Eclipse 2021-06

Tried a fresh Eclipse install, and also tried installing the GWT plugin without the Chrome debugger, and then adding the SDBG manually from here with no luck.

Looks like the SDBG died somewhere between my old 2018-12 Eclipse, and 2021-06 Eclipse.

Looking at the error:  javax/xml/bind/Datatypeconverter not found, it sounds like it's because Eclipse can no longer run on Java 8 (I'm running it on Java 11).

Does anyone have Chrome debug in Eclipse still working?  Or are there any other plugins that we can use?

I just did a fresh install on a new PC, and the GWT plugin worked fine with Eclipse 2021-06.

The only issue I have is when I launch Chrome from Eclipse, Chrome opens fine, however, I get this error:
and I can't debug the browser in Eclipse.  Debugging still works fine in Chrome.

I just updated my Eclipse development environment from 2021-03 to 2021-06. The installed GWT Eclipse Plugin (which hasn't been updated since 2017) no longer shows up in the menu bar, and it logs a bunch of errors. Is anyone (Brandon?) still maintaining it?
