Programming with Eclipse Framework often requires programmers to write glue code to link two classes together to perform certain functionality. Below is an example:

You want to link your Editor (extends TextEditor) with your Scanner (extends RuleBasedScanner) to do a customized syntax highlighting. Then you have to write quite a bunch of code dealing with several different classes other than Editor and Scanner, see platform.doc.isv/guide/editors_highlighting.htm
for a brief description. It's quite complex for beginners.

Similar situation happens when we want to link our Editor with our CompletionProposal to customize auto-completion.

We're doing research on automated synthesis of this kind of glue code, and we want to see more examples.

Could you please share your experience on writing glue code to link two classes? Just giving the names of the classes would be very helpful.

Thank you very much!
