Tree Editor in Eclipse

Post by chrishaase » Tue Apr 19, 2005 11:46 am

I'm missing the Tree Editor tool when using the <oxygen> Elipse plugin. :(
Are there any plans to make this tool available in Eclipse in the near future?

Hi Christian,

Our future plans are to try to move as much as possible from the tree editor functionality in the Outliner. The tree editor is DOM based that means it cannot load a document that is not yet XML (not well formed) while the Outliner does not have this problem. Another advantage of the Outliner is that it is synchronized in real time with the text editor and does not require parsing the document to get the tree updated when the document is changed. Currently the Outliner has drag and drop editing support but as I said, in the future we plan to add the actions available on the tree editor to the Outliner.
Also, you may use the tree editor and the Eclipse plugin in the same time, the license allows you to do so.

Best Regards,
