(i did do a brief search b4 posting and could not find any relevant links
with info i'm after).
classes. this platform also supports HTML 4.01, CSS (all of 1 and some of
2) portions of DOM 1 & DOM 2. what we call "application developers" write
HTML/JS/CSS that runs on our platform. Traditionally, these developers use
a hodgepodge of text editors to do their authoring and l8r run their apps
thru an emulator... there's no auto syntax checking, content assist,
we are now looking to develop an IDE/Studio and will be using Eclipse as a
i see that Aptana and MyEclipse appear to have things that we could use
and so does JSDT.
is there a link/page/review that compares these products? or can someone
briefly describe pros/cons?
mainly what we are interested in are:
- being able to run content assist, syntax highlighting as "dictated" by
our JS engine (not the one that comes w/JSDT/Aptana/MyEclipse)... how
would i do this w/JSDT ?
- i understand that one could add libraries (that are factored into the
syntax hl & content assist) that are js files... how does one extend JSDT
to accept classes that exposed via c/c++ ? Is this a possiblity
(note: we are not interested in rendering html w/in IE or FireFox... the
resultant files will run on our platform, so preview in browser is not
- i read some posts about JSDT not providing ability to debug JS... is
this still the case? if our js engine supports setting breakpoints,
single stepping etc., what eclipse plugin/debugger/tool APi do we use to
tie the UI to our engine ?
aside from tying the studio to our js/html/dom "engine", the only other
requirement is to be able to use a source control system.
how easy or difficult is it to restrict the js/html/dom to 1.2 specs and
add our c/c++ classes (you can think of them as similar to creating JS
classes w/in SpiderMonkey and exposing them to JSDT/aptana/myeclipse).
so i'm trying to determine if going the aptana/myeclipse route buys us
anything... appreciate any help/pointers/links.
