Hello everyone,

I want to add my custom editor to the E4 application using the fragment mechanism.

I know it's possible to add a view to the E4 application using a fragment. I create a fragment extending the feature "descriptors" of the application "org.eclipse.e4.legacy.ide.application". In this fragment I add a part descriptor with the tag "View".

The view is correctly added to the application in the "show view" dialog.

I want to know if it's possible with the fragment mechanism to add an editor to the application like the extension point "org.eclipse.ui.editors" in eclipse 3.X ? I want my editor will be added to the "Open With" dialog in the "Package Explorer". Maybe a tag "Editor" ?

I am also interested in this. Is it possible to create E4 based editors in eclipse IDE, or is the "org.eclipse.ui.editors" extention point still the prefered way?
