Oracle PL/SQL in Eclipse [message #67343] Thu, 16 June 2005 07:59 Go to next message

Hi,
I do a lot Java development as well as PL/SQL development. The latter is
very frustrating, because all IDEs for PL/SQL development a more or less
state of the art of the late 90s of the last millenium. All you get is
some simple kind of intellisense, that stops working when you have a typo
10 lines above and as a composation also works in comments an String
literals :(

So my dream is a plugin for eclipse with comparible features like the JDT
but for PL/SQL. If google and other search engines didn't fool me there is
no such thing. There are some simple DB-Plugins, to make tables and stuff
available in eclipse, but no real editor with the support for the usual
stuff one is used to as a java developer:

- syntex highlighting
- intellisense / auto completion, that is aware of the current context
- partial compilation
- code refactoring
- integration with Version Control Systems
...

After all the complaining here are my questions:

1. Are there others (individuals or companies) around,
that would be interested in such a plug-in?

2. On a technical level, what would I need to get such a plug in started?
I am well aware, that I can't finish such a project on my own, but support
of the first to points above would be awesome. But I guess I need some
parser /compiler and probably much more. So is there some kind of tutorial
how to create an editor for a new language in eclipse to get one started

3. On a higher level, if there is some serious interest in such a plugin
in the world. What would be the best aproach to get broad attention and
support of developers and companies? Would it be worth to make an eclipse
proposal out of it?

Have you taken a look at the Data Tools Platform project?
http://www.eclipse.org/datatools/

I believe that they are working to similar goals.
