Hello,
I'm working on a Eclipse plugin which adds content assist proposals to proprietary XML files.
I would like to inspect the XML's (that is, the XML file currently open in the editor) schema from within the plugin and to provide proposals based on it.
Is this possible to do via some Web Tools editor API?
This seems to me to be a better solution than reading and parsing the XSD in my plugin myself.
Thanks a lot.
Roded

With the latest release of Eclipse, there is an XML Content Model view, which allows you to explore the content model/schema that the WTP editor is currently using. You can start exploring at any element or attribute.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

That's a pretty cool feature!

Can I suggest adding a pop-up option to open the view?

Type CTRL+3 and type Content Model.

BTW, there is also an XML Doc View as well, which is similar to the Java Doc view. If an element or attribute has a schema and documentation annotations, they will show up in that view.

Yes, you can do that for any view.

What I mean is adding it to the "Show in" popup menu option *specifically* for while inside XML source. Definitely adds to the visibility for the feature.

Actually, I meant inspecting the content model from plugin code via a Web Tools API.
Thanks anyway though.
