Quarkus Tools for Visual Studio Code - 1.1.0 release

What’s new with Quarkus Tools for Visual Studio Code

The 1.1.0 release of Quarkus Tools for Visual Studio Code offers more language features for the application.properties file and new additions to existing features like validation and snippets support.

For a list of all changes, please refer to the changelog.

Value type validation for application.properties

For property values, there will now be an error diagnostic if the expected type does not match the value type.

Validate property value types

For the example above, quarkus.http.cors expects a boolean and quarkus.http.port expects an int.

The item.price config property was defined in a resource class to expect a float like so:

MyResource.java
@ConfigProperty(name = "item.price")
float price;

Go to definition support for config properties in application.properties

In VS Code, the 'Go to definition' feature is used by holding Ctrl (or ⌘) and left clicking on the desired config property, or by right-clicking the desired config property and clicking ‘Go to definition’ in the context menu.

New snippets

This release also brings new application.properties snippets:

qds - Configure a Quarkus datasource

qj - Configure a Jaeger tracer

Snippets for application.properties

Formatting support for application.properties

Thanks to formatting support, it is now possible to quickly remove extra whitespace or lines that may cluttering your application.properties file.

Format application.properties

Another use case for formatting, is adding/removing spacing around the equals sign. To add/remove spacing around the equals sign, change the quarkus.tools.formatting.surroundEqualsWithSpaces setting to true/false in the VS Code settings. Then, format the document.

Add spaces around equals sign

This wraps up the new major features in this release. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please do not hesitate to open a GitHub issue.

Stay tuned for the next release!
