>XML Templates View

>Eclipse 3.4 added a new view called the Templates View. Currently I think the Java Editor is the only editor that makes use of this view. If you do any serious XML editing, you can end up with lots of templates. Especially if you work on Docbook or DITA files. So, I opened bug 245547 to request that the WTP XML editor also make use of this view. Going with the community concept, and instead of just waiting for it to be done, I also created a patch, that shows how it might be implemented:


The patch needs some more tweaks, but you get a nice drag and drop view for the templates that are available for the XML editor. Ideally, any SSE based editor could contribute their templates, and they would show up in the view. The current patch provides all of the functionality that you get with the Java Editor’s contribution to the view, but it reads the XML templates instead.
