e(fx)clipse nightly and >= JDK8b111

JDK8b111 has a small but essential new zip in it:

You are right – finally the source-code of JavaFX is shipped with the JDK.

The next nightly builds of e(fx)clipse appropiately detect the source-zip which means you can now inspect the JavaFX source directly in the IDE, step through the JavaFX-Code in the debugger, … if your project uses Java8.


This is a huge forward when developing JavaFX applications.
