I'm new to Eclipse plugin and working on a project to extend the default Java editor.

Basically we need to create an editor for a Java-like language invented by us. It just defines some new keywords which need to be highlighted. I've already created a plugin project and added the jdt dependency. I think it should not be difficult but jdt is too complicated for me to understand in a short time. Could anybody tell me where to get started?

Your question is already somewhat old, but maybe you still care about an answer.

I was just searching something similar and I found a good intro here about extending the editor:
https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/platform-text/eclipseCon/talk.pdf

On the other hand, if you define your own language it might be worth taking a look at the Xtext project.
