Re: [platform-dev] Reusing generic editor features in JDT

Hi all,

This is really good news. If we can phase out jdt.ui and may be make it a light weight UI layer just to support additional custom JDT protocol parts in LSP, the JDT.LS will heavily benefit since we don't need to always change both jdt.ui and when we need to implement a new feature.

Best regards,

Hi all, hi Gayan,

I'm reviving this old thread that is the most relevant place to share some progress:
In (there is a p2 repo linked), you can see some progress on the topic of using JDT-LS in Eclipse IDE.
Currently, it just starts JDT-LS externally, from a separate installation as a separate process (similarly to what Wild Web Developer does with LemMinX); but it already does a decent bit of work that way. In the code, you can also find code that has tried to start JDT-LS in the same process as the workspace, and this seems to be both tricky and technically interesting; some issues were reported to JDT-LS about how this kind of integration can be made to work, but this is not trivial. The first iteration was then to keep the easier separate-process approach, but I (and others are welcome to join) will try to keep investigating having JDT-LS in the same process because I see major potential benefits in this.
