It seems like Eclipse at around M6-M8 had built in support for XML files. I downloaded M9 and then a few days later RC1 and the XML files default to open in whatever external app wants to open them.

I downloaded X-Men plugin and all that GEF stuff to get it to work, but it didn't work and I wonder if it isn't supported in version 3.0. Anyone have XML support working in RC1? If so, what did you do? It could be that I am just an idiot.

The first thing you do after unzipping a new Eclipse is to go through the Preferences and add mappings to the Text Editor for *.xml and whatever files you may work with that aren't supported by default (*.jsp, *.xsd, *.dtd, etc.). I haven't yet tried XMLBuddy with M9/RC1. I'll let you know (if I remember).

That's fine but you don't get the color coding and autocomplete from the DTD and all that cool jazz.

I never found "native" XML/JSP support in M8...I always got the impression you needed a plugin, but I never found one I liked (one that allows free use in a commercial environment & that works well). I'll check out X-Men when I go home...the #$*$# 'net filter at work blocks downloading of zip files.

BTW, on SourceForge, X-Men is marked a "pre-alpha"...did you find it stable, Gregg?

Cheers,


--Tim

I am using the non-pro version of XMLBuddy - the newest release is supposed to work with RC1.

There was a post on the Eclipse newsgroups by Bob Foster that XMLBuddy supports, indeed, RC1.
