I'm quite a newbie on developing Eclipse's plugin and so, i'd like to start with best practices and good advice!
I'd like to create a plugin that enhance the Eclipse's default java editor with some new features of mine.
Basically, i'd like to be able to switch the editor to read-only mode, and when it is read-only mode, to display it properly to the user: let's say, i'd like to get the border of the editor in red instead of grey (or any default color).
First of all, is this possible?
And next, which is the best way to get it working? I found out there is ClassFileEditor class in org.eclipse.jdt.internal.ui.javaeditor: is extending it the proper way to do what i want to do?
Thank you by advance and have a very good day
