Hi,
I'm a bit confused.
If I understand correctly TextEditor (and all other 3.x goodies under
org.eclipse.ui.*) are available only via the "compatibility layer".
Is this true?
I need a reasonably complete TextEditor (including, at least, Syntax
Highlight, Annotations and, possibly, hovers) does such a thing exist in
"native" e4?
Is there any plan to provide it in a reasonably near future?
Or should I stick to e3.x?

Thanks for any comment
Mauro

The Text editor infrastructure depends on the 3.x apis, so it only runs with the 4.2 Workbench (the whole thing).

JFace Text contains the TextViewer, a viewer that wraps SWT StyledText. It's what is used to implement the TextEditor in eclipse. You might be able to get away with writing your own Eclipse4 text editor using TextViewer (SourceViewer is the JFace viewer that is used to implement the java editor).

The Simple IDE experiment has an editor with Syntax hightlighting - you
might want to take a look at it.

Hi Thomas,
What do you mean by 'The Simple IDE experiment'. I am now working on some E4 application in which I want to use TextEditor. But now I have no idea about how to include it. Thanks a lot.
