I m trying to write an eclipse plugin which is suppose to render xml file some different manner. What actually I want is to replace the name of the file displayed in the project explorer with one of its element without originally change the file name. for example I have a file named 1234.xml with content

<name> dinesh </dinesh>
<college> NITT </college>
So I want to change the name of 1234.xml to dinesh.xml in the project explorer.

Can anybody tell me what are the possible ways I can achieve this. I am new to eclipse plugin development. So please provide me as much information as possible.

I wouldn't underestimate the difficulty and complications you'll run into to do this.

You'd start with your own plug-in contributing that behavior using the Common Navigator Framework: http://help.eclipse.org/luna/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/guide/cnf.htm
