Hi there,

I've been building a plugin that consists of an editor for a domain specific language in eclipse. I'd like to give the editor the ability to fold blocks of code, in the same way that one can for java projects. From looking around I get the impression that Eclipse only allows this for Java. Is this correct?

No, Eclipse _allows_ this for other languages as well. :-)
But you need to *implement* it for your DSL.

Google "eclipse folding editor" gives this interesting tutorial link:
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-Folding-in-Eclipse-Text-Editors/folding.html

Eclipse and its plugins are mostly open source, so you can e.g. look at
the Java editor to learn how it does its job. :-)
