i'm using eclispe 3.7.2, i thought that using JET template editor would give me auto complete for tags, but it only gives me syntax highlight, is that all?

also when i try to use MWE editor, i get NOTHING, no autocomplete no hyperlinks (which is funny, cause even in xml editors i can hyperlink a class name..

is this a bug?

For MWE, this is just not implemented.

MWE2 comes with a workflow DSL and dedicated editors which gives you content assist and hyperlinking and all the stuff. So if you are writing workflows you should consider using MWE2 in favor the MWE1. If you are just using or maintaining an MWE1 workflow, you have to live with this limitation.

Anyway, MWE workflows are typically of limited size and no subject of frequent changes. I did not consider this missing editor support as mission critical. Just open the referred types with JDT (Navigate/Open Type) and see the set/add-methods that these classes expose.
