I hope this is the correct forum for this type of post. I just recently (roughly a week ago) downloaded and installed Eclipse for Java EE developers 4.3 for windows 7 64 bit to replace my old version.
I've started doing some work with spring/xml documents in Eclipse and found that when you open a XML document, like those used for beans in spring or for maven POMs, Eclipse would show a few extra tabs below the central workspace that code is displayed regularly. These tabs provided some extremely useful tools and I was getting a lot of use out of them. However Today I opened eclipse to do some work and found those buttons were missing and the only option I had left was the raw XML view tab. How can I go about getting these tabs back? I don't think I installed any plugins in the interim that would effect this portion of Eclipse.

XML editing is not provided by JDT.

Structure editors for poms, e.g., are provided by m2e.
I think STS brings their own XML editor?
Or maybe you just used the standard "Eclipse XML Editors and Tools" feature.

Check your previous install for any features you had installed and may have forgotten to install into the new version.

best,
Stephan

The extra tabs were showing up on my new install when I first installed it and ran it. It worked correctly for a few days, but then the other day when I got on they were just gone. I have the same plugins installed on my new version that I did on my old one.

In that case, maybe you once said "Open with ... Text editor", which Eclipse remembers.

Look at the option you have in the "Open with" context menu ...
