You are right the interfaces/classes and the extension point would best
go into the ltk-plugin of the platform. However, I don't know whether
I'll be able to get someone interested on the platform team and we may
end up doing this in CDT. I don't think we need a framework
I think a multi-language framework would be a great idea. Unfortunately, there really isn't a project out there that has multi-language IDE support as it's mandate. The Platform doesn't have a component set up to be that, aside from debug. And it would be a lot of work to get a new component going, something I don't think any of us have the time to take that on.
The CDT is natural, at least for the Java interactions. JNI requires a language that can produce C linkage, or you're writing your interface in C. C and C-like languages like this are things the CDT would like to support.
