Hello,

I'm studying a way to transform an eclipse 3.x plug-in into an (native)
e4 plug-in.

At this point of my study, I have a problem with editors. I haven't
found a wiki or tuto about editors in e4. Thanks to your documentation
and compatibility layer, I was able to integrate 3.x plug-ins into e4.
But nothing about native e4 editors. If I understand correctly, views
and editors are unified in e4 as "Parts".
But how to manage/declare the mapping between file's extensions and a Part ?
How editor inputs are injected into the Part ?
How actions (save, save as, ...) are managed ?

Stephane

Hi,

In 4.0 we have no story for this and we are just discussing how we want
to bring in this feature to 4.1.

In my SimpleIDE I've been experimenting with an extended
Application-Model which adds an EditorDescriptor.

Save actions are quite simply you simply annotate one of your methods
with @Persists and the frameworks save action will call it (IIRC there's
a method on EPartService which allows to save editors).
