This is just a quick update on the status of Eclipse JDT Language Server support in Eglot.

Since my Python skills are close to none, Roland Grunberg kindly stepped forward1 to make sure that jdtls can take care of setting up everything in order to avoid ugly workarounds in Emacs2 and, I guess, other text editors and IDEs as well.

The fix will be available on the next Eclipse JDT milestone.3 However, nothing stops you from grabbing the latest snapshot build4 and M-x eglot away in your Java projects.

Even though I am not working with Java these days, it’s good to know that I could do it in Emacs with the nice features LSP offers.
