Atelier: Gettings many java.lang.NullPointerException errors

My developers are reporting many more NullPointerException errors when using Atelier then normal lately.  This happens 'randomly' when moving about Eclipse.  Anyone know what can cause this?  One or two during a work session was normal but it's getting in the way of work.

Atelier: 1.3

Eclipse: 4.11.0

My guess is that it has something to do with a recent Eclipse upgrade. Photon is Eclipse version 4.8, which is the last officially supported version for use with Atelier.

I noticed that Atelier gets updates about once a year.  Is there a reschedule or should I assume I'll need to wait till around June 2020?  1.3 was release around the same time as Eclipse 4.11.  I wonder why it isn't more compatible. 

I'm not sure if Atelier will get too much anymore.

I would suggest you move to VSCode-ObjectScript extension, which is more useful already by now. Don't hesitate to contact me directly or publicly here, if you have any questions about it.

I see the that VSCode-ObjectScript has been updated just recently.  Is that the tools to use now?

I'm just a developer of this particular tool. If you will be happy you will use it. I'm not from InterSystems, so, I can just recommend it, as a developer and user of own product.


I install the extension in VSCode and then define a server connection in settings but get a "Cannot read property 'id' of undefined
" error.  

please fill the issue here with the details of how to reproduce it, so I may help. And you can try the latest not published version here, which you can install manually by command Install from VSIX from the command palette.
