XML Editor "unsupported content type in editor" in Eclipse 3.6 [message #548879] Fri, 23 July 2010 11:05 Go to next message

Hello, I recently started using Helios/Eclipse 3.6, and now whenever I
open a file with a content type that is a child of the XML content type
(such as opening plugin.xml, feature.xml, or even just files without the
..xml extension, but which are xml) I get the message "Unsupported
content type in editor. To associate file extension with a supported
content type, please see Content Type Preference Page" and just a basic
text editor is opened.
This happens even with a fresh install of Eclipse, and fresh workspace.
Is this a bug, and is there any workaround?

For the plug-in and feature files, this is a workaround for
inconsistencies with the text document implementation we have in WTP
according to bug 307524. It shouldn't have affected normal XML files as
I understand it, and indeed they seem to be fine when I try them. These
files without the .xml filename extension, they do have some sort of
filename extension, right?

Yes, they have an extension. I've opened a bug report, as something does
indeed seem to be wrong:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=320996

But are saying that for the particular cases of the PDE contributed
content types (plugin.xml, feature.xml, *.product, site.xml, etc.), this
behavior is expected, caused by that workaround?
