Hi all, I am a newcomer looking for some sapient advice.
I've read a lot about IMP, DLTK, XText and JDT,
but now I need some suggestion to get the right way.
We are working on a language embedded in Java, thinks something like:

class Foo{
public int myMethod(){
int num=17;
return <% my syntax that use num to do something %>;

From this code, a regular java file will be generated, properly replacing the <% %> blocks in some way.
I'd like to provide an IDE for that.
Being a superset of java, would be wonderful to have full support of JDT, plus some features for the custom part.
I'm not sure which is the project that better fits my problem and save me a lot of work.
For example I don't want to write from scratch a java grammar and implement a whole IDE for it, but possibly extending an existent one (seems IMP provides an example of Java IDE).
In your opinion, which is the best choice or way to follow?
Any contribution is really appreciate.
