Hi,
could anyone tell me, if it is possible to integrate some parts of Eclipse IDE to my own eclipse 4 application?
I could create my own wizards for creation of eclipse plugins or java classes but I hope there is a way to use something what is already created.
Thank you very much,

Martin

No the IDE stuff all needs the compat layer as of now. I'm not sure what
the state is in luna. There was a plan to start splitting things up but
I don't know if this work has been started/targeted for Luna.

For Luna the focus will be on being able to integrate pure 'e4' parts / handlers...into Eclipse 4 (the opposite direction than you'd like, sorry). This is because the workbench code is *so* self-referential that it's apparent that it'll take a lot of refactoring to do this. I tried to port the 'Error Log' view (the simplest one I could find) but even after a full week of work I just realized that the string I was pulling on was of almost infinite length...;-(. So for now the idea is to use the Eclipse 4 RCP story if you need existing features and to ensure that your pure e4 bits will work directly in the resulting model (i.e. they'll get ViewReferences...).
