Environment: I have mac with os el capitan, Eclipse Java EE Mars Release 4.5.0 with force.com IDE http://media.developerforce.com/force-ide/eclipse42 updated today.


If I create any component e:g vf page directly in salesforce.com then select ide to refresh from server for a salesforce project, it failed to pull new components from salesforce.

Anyone know any solution for this, I have searched previous posts and tried but still struggling to fix this problem.

You need to select Add/Remove Components.. There you can select recently created your VF page!

Refreshing means it'll refresh only existing components in your IDE.

  • Thanks for your reply. Sorry I missed to mention I am selecting Add/Remove Component. I think it is more eclipse problem as it throwing a NullPointerException when it try to refresh. Apr 14, 2016 at 11:01
  • Ended up reinstalling Eclipse and things are seems working :) Apr 15, 2016 at 8:31
