Hi Donat!
I suppose stable update site for Photon is:
(it’s not listed on the page you linked).
But what is that for 2018-09?
does not work.

I updated to Buildship 2.2.2 plugin on my Eclipse 2018-09 IDE (v4.9.0 , 20180917-1800 ) and I noticed that code completion/hints are not working when I am editing build.gradle files with the “Gradle Build Script Editor”.

E.g in dependencies { ... } section, I typed “impl” Ctrl+space and it does not give suggestion for “implementation”. I recall this working in 2.1.x. Any idea why it is no longer working?

Check for Updates, show there is BuildShip 2.2.2 available, but the update fails.

You are right, was not listed in the docs. I’ve fixed it.
2.2.2 from the e48 update sites works with 2018-09. I’ll adjust our infrastructure to produce e49 update sites shortly.

At the moment Buildship does not support code completion, only syntax highlighting.

This is a known issue, that most probably comes from the Eclipse platform. Please check for the workaround.

Oh, when is code completion when editing build.gradle planned? Is there an issue # for that?

FYI: according to the Announcing Buildship 2.0 blog back on Jan 11, 2017

Now, you can make changes to both projects with the benefit of complete IDE support: error markers, code completion, refactoring and more.

Hi Donat,
still no official Update Site for e49?

There is a 2018-09 update site for Buildship 3.0 now:
FYI we are not planning to release more 2.x versions so now new update sites will be introduced.

So is 2.2.2 officially not supporting 2018-09? Because the page at still offers no option to install the latest 2.2.2 over 2018-09.
The official 2018-09 update site still contains 2.2.1.
Above you said we can use Photon update site to install 2.2.2 on 2018-09, but if so, I think you should also notify it on that page.

2.2.2 does support 2018-09. If it didn’t we would publish another service release.

The installation page needs some care anyway, especially considering that Eclipse just changed to a rolling release. I’ll look into this soon.
