Hi, i need help for following purpose.

I want to add some keywords in eclipse IDE for java programming.

To be more accurate its like that when i am writing some java code in
eclipse i want that some specific protocol names should appear as keywords
while writing a code. so that when i am typing that protocol names it
should give me an option of auto completion ( proposal list ) ( ctrl+space
) and highlight those protocol names as well.This is only possible if i
add those protocol names in IDE.

Can anybody help me out?

Thanksss!

Hi,
I believe you are asking how to define your own templates.

This might help:

Hi Lars,

No i am not talking about templates. as in templates it will just force me
to paste some specific text or code part aftr any keyword.

my task is like this: just like u hav protocol name TCP and its attribute
like srcport, destport, ipadd. Now when i am typing java code in eclipse
i want that when i type TCP. and then press ctrl+space thn it should give
me a proposal list of ( srcport, destport, ipadd, ipheader and like wise )
and then i shud choose from tht proposal list. and that protocol names and
its attributes should be higlighted as well.

What should i do. Help me plz.

Thanks!

BR,
Syed

You can write your own completion proposal computer. See
'org.eclipse.jdt.ui.javaCompletionProposalComputer' extension point for
details.

Hi Daniel,

I already had a look on this extension point:

'org.eclipse.jdt.ui.javaCompletionProposalComputer'

the problem is this that i am not good in java. i just started with it. so
i right now i am not in a position to make my own plugin. To make a new
plugin at my own i need some example that explains how to make a new
completion proposal.

2ndly today i was reading about Jface as well. Do you think it is also
concerned with content assist or only Jdt is concerned??

Thanks Dear.

BR,
Syed

If it's for the Java editor then it's JDT and then there's no other way
than write your own plug-in.

Hi Dani,

Thanks for making it clear that its only JDT that is concerned. As i told
you that i am new with both i-e java and eclipse. So please can you help
me in a way that if you just make a simple plugin for my understanding and
in that plugin just show me that how to add and keywords in the IDE. It
will be really helpful for me to get a better understanding. Thanks for
your cooperation Dani.
Have a nice time, Good Bye!

BR,
Syed
