Just as an update to the group, we have working QML parsers using Acorn for CDT¹s Qt support and are working in extending tern.js to understandQML objects.

I think that¹s an important intangible inthis discussion. If we need changes, the tern/acorn communities seem pretty friendly to us. Doug.
+1This sounds excellent. IMHO extending projects like acorn/tern and integrating that with Eclipse JSDT is a good way forward. I would actually consider JSDT done if all we have in the JSDT repository is extension points and a curated build recipe for collecting the
implementations from communities out there.All the talk we have about replacing/extending the current JSDT parser may sound like we are trying to achieve the opposite. However we only update the parser because JSDT's current functionality needs to serve us well until the communities create better
alternates. -- Gorkem
