XML Tools Component

Just to keep people in the loop, the Webtools project is going to be incubating a new XML Development Tools component. The goal of this new component is turn Eclipse into a first-class XML development tool. It will include contributions from the popular EclipseXSLT and X-Assist projects. From my perspective, it’s really exciting to see Eclipse community members coming together to make the XML development space a better place in Eclipse.

    Why having another XML editor under the hood of webtools? A real solution would be to have a basic xml editor infrastructure in the platform to get rid of that duplicate code (Ant editor, plugin.xml editor, etc). This way everybody could extend this with their own things like Ant stuff, PDE stuff, XQuery, XSLT…

    just my 2 cents

    I don’t think it’s another XML editor specifically. I think it uses the available framework within WTP for the XSLT contribution at least.

    Yes, it will leverage and extended the WST XML and Structured Editor components that exist already. Just add some specific stuff for XSLT, and it will leverage the Debug framework as well from eclipse.
