Re: [ide-dev] Java IDEs comparison

But this is how IntelliJ works. In Android Studio, there was pretty much same API for Gradle and Android manifest file. It might've even worked with Java files the same way, don't remember.

PSI is fairly similar to SSE from WTP. I have not worked with XText, but I think that it might be possible to have XText generate SSE DOM for new languages. But SSE is WTP so there's no way under the sun to have PDE (I do not know PDE still have plugin manifest editor) and/or JDT to use it. Or so I've been told in the past.
SSE is the an example of how the Tragedy of Commons affected Eclipse IDE development. Having it in Platform UI would have been relevant, useful and would have provided more consistency across editors.
However, a technical constraint about SSE is that it strongly assumes that the IDE must provide a DOM and a partitioning for the documents. With the rise of external dev tools such as language servers, it's a limitation that doesn't make it easy enough to adopt for some languages.
