Q: How do I use CodeMix with MyEclipse?

A: Simply add the CodeMix plugin to your MyEclipse 2017 installation.

Q: Will CodeMix be bundled in MyEclipse?

Q: How do I use CodeMix with Angular IDE and Webclipse?

A: Simply add the CodeMix plugin to your Angular IDE or Webclipse installation.

Q: Will CodeMix be bundled in Angular IDE?

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

A: No. CodeMix will work with existing licenses for MyEclipse Professional and higher, and Webclipse including Angular IDE.

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

A: CodeMix is the next generation of Webclipse. Since this is a major architectural change, the initial CodeMix release will be a separate Eclipse plugin that can be installed in addition to Webclipse. In the future, Webclipse will become CodeMix and will continue to use existing Webclipse licenses.

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 packs will be included once CodeMix is out of Technical Preview.

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.
