RE: Think big (RE: [eclipse-dev] Re: What's happening after 2.1?
I think this type of thing is still far
away. There is no WYSIWYG support in Eclipse. Lot's of different
editors are being built around the current architecture, so this would require
everyone to rewrite their source editors, or there could be two versions of
the java source editor (not good).
way to overcome this problem and enable us to experiment with new innovative
code editing technologies might be to refactor the current JDT editor support
away from the current editor so it could be added to *any* editor that is
embedded inside Eclipse. This would enable people to keep using (and
developing if they like) the current code editor while we experiment with other,
more experimental and innovative designs.
also would enable the people clamoring for a true VI and a true Emacs inside
Eclipse to have their way *and* have Eclipse's cool Java code assist
