We are planning to develop an eclipse desktop product. This product is more like a mini ide than a standalone RCP product. It would need the following features of Eclipse IDE.|
1. Common Navigator Framework (Project Explorer)
3. Text Editors (Xtext based framework)
4. Problem View/Errors View/Console View
5. Quick Access
6. Preferences Pages
Question is, to develop a mini-IDE type of tool (with above features) based on 4.x stream, what is the best approach that we can take?
Thank you for your response.

as most of the stuff you want to re-use needs the compatibility layer
anyway, IMHO you do not have a real choice here. Therefore, I would use
the compatibility layer. However, you should develop everything you
create from scratch in e4 style, meaning all your handlers, views, etc.
should be POJOs. In 4.4 it will probably be possible to use e4 POJOs in
a compatibility mode application. In the meantime, you can also use this
