RE: [eclipse-dev] What's next for eclipse (round 2)

Title: RE: [eclipse-dev] What's next for eclipse (round 2)

The play and record idea is a great idea.  However, I would not want to have to write scripts in Emacs Lisp.  While I have written Emacs Lisp scripts in the past I would much prefer to use a _javascript_ language.  Something like embedding BeanShell into eclipse? 


Now what would be really cool is to have an extensible interpreter that would allow people to implement different script languages that run on a single interpreter (_javascript_, Emacs Lisp, VBA, etc).  However, that would be a lot of work.

My ideal implementation would be to expose macros using an implementation of Emacs Lisp, then include a record/play function in the UI to activate them.  There's already an open source project implementing a large chunk of this (JEmacs) that would be worth investigating.

This would have the nice side-effect of creating a "plug-in API" for text editing, enabling people to more easily extend the text editor.  It would also enable people to create plug-ins by porting things from the huge library of Emacs Lisp add-ins that are already available.
