We started working on a new feature of Spring IDE - an XML editor for Spring beans config files. Some details and a first screenshoot can be found here.
If you have any ideas, hints, experiences with regards to an XML editor based on the Eclipse Web Standard Tools (WST) project please share them in this thread.
Currently we need input for the following topics:
- * How can we leverage JDT to provide code completion for the bean classes? Our current brute-force approach (traversing through the projects AST looking for packes + types matching a specific string) is too slow.
* How can we leverage JDT to provide code completion for bean properties? Ok, here we have the same brute-force option to traverse the AST of the bean class. But is there any JDT code we can leverage?
* The icons used in beans view are boring or totally wrong. Do you have ideas which icons are a better fit for the artefacts defined in the Spring beans config DTD?
* Btw. we need an icon for Spring IDE and it's website. Any suggestions?
