Hello,

The word is that the mylyn project modified the content assist feature in
Eclipse, and I am developing a plugin for Eclipse 3.4 that should improve
the functionality of the content assist feature, and error correction. I
have found which packages are relevant to content assist, namely the
jface.text.contentassist package, ui.fieldassist, and the jdt.core
package, and now I'm looking for ways to extend them. However, there is no
defined extension point for any of these packages in the list of extension
points given with the program. I tried creating my own extension points,
but I cannot figure out how to get them to be useful. There are many
tutorials out there to help make editors, which often involve content
assist, but they all go about it the same way. I worked with the editors,
and made my own, but when I got to the ContentAssistProcessor, no tutorial
anywhere seemed to adequately explain it. Preferably, I'd like to use the
ContentAssistProcessor that the Java editor uses, but I don't know how to
access it.

If you could assist me in either finding a way to change the way the
standard java editor's content assist feature works, or how to make a
custom java editor with my own content assist, I would be endlessly
grateful. If there's anything else you need to know to better understand
my issue, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
