We have a lot of custom made application XML files that includes Javascript code. We would like to syntax highlight JS code inside these XML nodes in Eclipse.

How can we do this?

I have looked at jsdt.web.core and jsdt.web.ui to understand embedded JS in HTML, but so far no use

1. Tried to apply JSDT FormattingStrategy to JS node. :

	if (IStructuredPartitions.UNKNOWN_PARTITION.equals(contentTypes[i]) || IHTMLPartitions.SCRIPT.equals(contentTypes[i]) || IHTMLPartitions.SCRIPT_EVENTHANDLER.equals(contentTypes[i])) {
		((MultiPassContentFormatter) formatter).setSlaveStrategy(new FormattingStrategyJSDT(), contentTypes[i]);

Tried to find the StructurePartition related with JS node andtried the following partition in the IF condition(above):

2. Played with translate() and translateJSNode() methods - NO USE

3. Replaced <scriptcode> (custom XML element with JS code inside) and with <script> tag before translation, so that the translator will accept the node as script node(BLOCK_TEXT) and translate it as JS node. TRIED, not successful

Any tips where to look, to start and couple of examples would be perfect ?

looking forward to get some feedback from you
