Comment 2 Petr Pisl 2016-06-07 14:44:01 UTC
In this case the javascript features are not enabled yet. The question is, whether the javascript and json templates should be available at this moment. 

I have find out that org.netbeans.lib.lexer.LanguageManager, creates in such case NO_LANG language and store it to the cache for the text/x-json mimetype. This no language is created before the javascript functionality is enabled and because the LanguageManger cache is not cleared, the no language is keep until you will restart the ide. After enabling the js features, the other languages are created correctly. 

If you create new javascript file before enabling js features, then json works correctly, but javascript editor does not work until restart. 

So IMHO the problem is that LanguageManager is asked for the text/x-json too early and it cannot find the right provider, so it creates NO_LANG, which stores to the cache, which is not refreshed, when the enabling features is done. 

The problem appears now, because I have moved javascript functionality from IDE cluster to the webcommon cluster. 

Svato, Milo: Any ideas?
Comment 3 Svata Dedic 2016-06-17 13:34:26 UTC
Apologies; wrong categorization.

While the situation could be possibly handled in Lexer API (lexer Mime provider does not listen on Language/LanguagesEmbeddingMap changes and does not refire events), I believe the proper place to fix the issue is ergonomics: the first Lookup for e.g. Language on a MimePath should be consistent with the subsequent ones - so the lookup for the Language should trigger loading of the appropriate cluster.

Jardo - please advise.
