e4 lacks the notion of (text)-editor framework. e(fx)clipse has core
infrastructure that can be used even in an SWT context.
I wrote a proof-of-concept for SWT some weeks ago -
By default the framework will always open the same Text-Editor and
reconfigures it but you can contribute your own OSGi-Service to:
* reconfigure which Editor-Class is used (EditorClassURLProvider)
* reconfigure how the editor is opened from an e4 model point of
I think the concepts we have are superior to the ones you see in e3 and
they are not a direct downport from the e3 APIs to work in e4 world -
they use the power of e4 DI and OSGi-Services to give you better code
reuseage, less framework dependency and many many other goodies.
