I was looking at some property pages in JDT and I found that writing
property pages is awfully complicated compared to writing preference
pages. I would expect something like a FieldEditorPropertyPage, but
all I was able to find were examples that did the whole ui layout,
data binding, validation, ... in lengthy code.

Besides that, there are several places in Eclipse where a dialog to
select a file/folder from a project/workspace is used. However, that
dialog seems not to exist in the form of a reusable component like a
Dialog or FieldEditor class. Besides that all these dialogs are internal

It it true that writing property pages is that complicated or am I
missing something?

Take care,
