I am implementing custom Ant tasks in Eclipse using the requisite extension points to make them available to the platform.

This works well, but I would like to make context information for tasks and parameters available in the ant editor. I see that this is provided for some, but not all standard tasks and parameters. I cannot find where this information is specified.

Does anyone know what the Ant editor consults to look up this information?

I find it handy to have a workspace with all the Eclipse SDK projects in it so that I can search the source to find answers to questions like this one, i.e., how is that implemented?

Thanks for this and no question, I can ramp up spy and dig through all the details. However, the point of the forum seemed to be to get a shortcut to information before I go digging in depth.

For anyone looking for this: The task descriptions are at this hard-coded
using a description file for ant 1.6.1 embedded in the plugin. There is a nice proposed infrastructure for documentation, but it is not exposed. Would be great to have that gap filled...
