At first I have commited an improvment about Node.js preferences. Now you can set the node.js path. See attached screenshot.
The combo is filled with default path according the OS. If your node is not installed in the default path, it searchs in your PATH env if you have a node path to retrieve the well path.

I wasn't required to change "executable" attribute on my Fedora 20
x86_64. What kind of problem it could be: the problem of OSX or wrong
executable attribute for "node" and "executable" binaries in repository?

It's my friend Pascal who has created this embed node.js, I will answer you but now he is on holiday.
But with my improvement, you can try to install node.js in your computer and use "Native Node.js".

If you want to see the command line of node.js + teh JSON request/response used with tern server, you can see those traces in Eclipse Console.
See https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/wiki/Tern-Console

Many thank's for your information. I will speak to Pascal about this idea.

There is 2 issues about tern performance : 

 * "Parse JS file of tern doc with monitor" => https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/issues/5
 * "Improve performance with JS Editor and tern completion" => https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/issues/6
