Hi,

I love the features of eclipse platform as java ide and features like
source formating, refactoring etc. are real life savers.

On the other hand, time-to-time I spend some considerable amount of time
on JSP - Struts development. This is where I use WTP. The features I use
the most is JSP, XML editing, AS deployment and AS debugging.

During those times, I feel like, I am "back to ancient ides we used".
I think, in terms of code validation and source formating, highlighting
etc. WTP has a long way to go. I am well aware that in an environment
where -at least- 4 languages used (HTML, javascript, java, JSP) this is
not a trivial task.

Amongst all the features of WTP, one that would please me the most would
be a better source formatting.

Is there any plans to improve this work area?

Regards,

Hasan Ceylan

OK actualy it is a bug in the WTP that the source formating and
validation messes up.

It is down to infamous "Turkish I" problem.

Let me explain:

In English i - I are same letters. However in Turkish (I will send the
mail in UTF hopefully you will see the same thing), we have two i`s, i -
İ and ı - I... Therefore testing for the tags fail a lot due to
toLower() and toUpper() calls. So people with Turkish locale end up all
the tags which have "i" in end up with huge number of validation
warnings and bad formatting.

Mylar had the same issue I submitted the fix.

I will open up a bugzilla and attach the required patch.

Regards,
Hasan Ceylan
