Re: [wtp-dev] JSON Editor contribution

I don’t think the C++ IDE package has it and we’re seeing json as a popular config format for embedded too.

You haven't had any need for xml/xsd/dtd but now need json ? (actually a serious question since it would surprise me if true :)

And if it is that generic, I’d have to ask why it’s in WTP and not in the Eclipse platform, or in some layer like the IDE common project we keep talking about and really should get off the ground.

Because we find that for now the see in WTP is the closest thing we get to have a "multi-lang" tooling that we can use today and
get out with minimal dependencies.

At any rate, I need to get my multi-lang project off the ground before I can have a convincing argument otherwise. Eclipse really needs a good json editor and I’m glad for this contribution.

Thanks - we think so too and this seemed to be the fastest way we could get it in.

I think if we do it right there will be minimal exposed SSE dependencies so if a better option shows up in future things can move over there
quite easily.

The dependency on SSE is an issue.

Why? SSE is shipped in all Eclipse packages, and is already required and used by most structured document editors. If this is not an issue for XML and HTML, why would it be for JSON?
