Taking plugins from WSAD to Eclipse 3.1.2 ?

Hi,
We used to use WSAD 5.1.2 and have moved on to Eclipse 3.1.2.

We are keen to have all the text highlighting that was possibly in WSAD for things like XML, Javascript and CSS etc.

I've looked at the old WSAD box and there seem to be a lot more areas of configuration for these technologies.

I understand that eclipse is a pluggable environment so was wondering if it was possible to take the plugin directories from C:\wsad\wstools\eclipse\plugins and add them to the new box in the relevant directory.

Having looked at the plugin dir in WSAD I can't understand which ones are important! There are so many...

Has anyone tried to use the WSAD plugins in Eclipse or have you all gone for seperate new plugins like XML Buddy and so on ?

I guess we could just compile the basic XML highlighting in Eclipse 3.1.2 (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/os-ecxml/)

Thanks for any help and advise.

I think that we will go for the basic XML syntax highlighting available in Eclipse (the first one on the link mentioned previously that you have to compile) and then use a custom schema for auto complete.

Thanks for the help.
