I got the spell check feature working in Eclipse by taking a wordlist separated by next line sequences and loadin it with an .dictionry extension..

Feature works great so far.

But, there is no way ot globally update the wordlist loaded except manual..

Has anyone submitted a request ot Eclipse Foundation to have this changed in version 3.2?

unsure. there is a spellcheck plugin out there. it seems like you are using something different. i used it and was initially quite pleased with the results, but had to do away with it because it slowed the editor down so much.

I am using the built-in spell checker that was enabled in the final eclipse3.0 release..

If you are in Eclipse3.1 any version its under General->Editors->TextEditors->Spelling
I agree. Here's the link:
