I'm trying to make an Eclipse editor. I want it to color my words. I already have my parser and it provides me with all required information about the text. How can I do some coloring with Eclipse editor?

I know there is XText plugin, but it requires me not only learn how to use it, but also to write anoter parser using Xtext's own language and dealing with all it's quirks.

I suppose there is a simple way of extending base Eclipse editor with some interfaces for coloring and similar tasks. Where can I find description of steps required to add such interfaces?

Simply put - I need a chain of steps from simple Ecplipse editor to an editor with coloring (and may be some assitance or othe featres from Java editor). Where should I start?
