Hi folks,

I have implemented an Eclipse RCP application and now need to allow the user to edit XML files, make some changes and save the updated file.

What is the best option for that? Use the default Editor RCP classes?
Is there any plugín I can integrate in my application that provides a more user-friendly way to display and edit XML files?

Thanks in advance,

Mh

The Eclipse Webtools project ships with an XML editor you should be able
to reuse along with its Structured Source Editing (SSE) technology. If
you need customizations, you can use SSE.

Check out this presentation:
