Frequently Asked Questions

What Existing Genuitec Customers are Asking about CodeMix

Q: What is CodeMix?

A: CodeMix is an Eclipse plugin that gives you access to the power of Visual Studio Code and the vibrant Code OSS extension community, directly from Eclipse. With CodeMix, you’ll enjoy all the enterprise tooling you depend on, like Java and Spring, plus access to all those cool web languages and exciting new technologies you’ve been wanting to try. And now, with the release of CodeMix 2.0, you also get all of the awesome features available in Webclipse 1.x. As a result of this merging of technologies, Webclipse has been rebranded as CodeMix.  

Q: Is CodeMix available now?

A: Yes! After a successful Technical Preview, CodeMix 2018 (v2.0) is now available. 

Q: How can I stay up to date on CodeMix and give feedback?

A: Visit the CodeMix Journey page to see where we’ve been and where we are headed. And then, join our Insiders to stay up to date on the latest developments, provide feedback on your CodeMix experience, and let us know what features you would like to see in CodeMix. 

Q: Do I need a new license key to use CodeMix if I already have a license key for MyEclipse or Webclipse?

A: CodeMix works with existing paid licenses for MyEclipse Professional and higher, and Webclipse, which includes Angular IDE. If you are using a Free Webclipse license, which caps usage of Pro features to 8 days per month, your license will move to the 2.0 licensing model on October 17, 2018. At that time, you get a traditional 45 day evaluation period. After the evaluation period, affordable plans are available for purchase.

Q: How do I use CodeMix with MyEclipse?

A: Simply add the CodeMix plugin to your MyEclipse installation (version 2017 or higher).

Q: How do I use CodeMix with Webclipse?

A: CodeMix is the next generation of Webclipse. Simply download CodeMix and it will include all of your favorite Webclipse features.

Q: Will CodeMix be bundled in Angular IDE?

A: Yes! Angular IDE includes CodeMix, there is no need to download CodeMix separately.

Q: What will happen to Webclipse now that CodeMix is coming out?

A: CodeMix is the next generation of Webclipse. Since this was a major architectural change, the initial CodeMix release was a technical preview installed as a separate Eclipse plugin. Now, with the release of CodeMix 2.0, CodeMix replaces Webclipse. You will still be able to use Webclipse 1.x until October 17, 2018. After that time, you must upgrade to CodeMix 2.0. As always, upgrades are included with your existing paid license—no additional purchase required.

Q: How do I get CodeMix via Secure Delivery Center (SDC)?

A: If you have MyEclipse, Webclipse or Angular IDE delivered via SDC, you can simply install CodeMix as a Third-Party Library and use with current licensing. For basic Eclipse or JetBrains management, licensing can be added as an upgrade. Contact sales@genuitec.com.

CodeMix SDC packs are in private testing. Contact sales@genuitec.com if interested in using CodeMix or Angular IDE more efficiently with SDC packs.

Q: Are there any resources to help me get started?

A: The CodeMix Learning Center is a great place to get answers to your questions. The Getting Started with CodeMix page includes a nice overview of the features you’ll want to be familiar with before diving into CodeMix. And as always, you can visit our support forum if you can’t find the answer you are looking for.
