  • Rinzo XML Editor

    My company pays for Intellij IDEA Ultimate so I have always thought that anything eclipse based sucks ball in comparison

    However, I like free stuff so I always keep an eye out on each release of eclipse just in case anything interesting happens.

    Invariably my biggest gripe never gets addressed:
    XML editing from a Java perspective.
    e.g. why doesn't eclipse auto-complete class names in XML files?
    why can't it jump from a wired class to the XML definition and vice-versa?

    Anyway, I thought I'd post a link to a plugin that seems to address some of these issues - Rinzo XML Editor.

    Frankly I'm surprised that this isn't included in STS by default since this sort of thing lets you "Develop With Pleasure!"

    Keep up the good work!
    STS is great if you don't have a licence for the Ultimate edition.

    One of the joys and pains of working in the Eclipse open source community is its diversity. It's diversity of products, features, developers, and of course quality. I am not trying to imply anything about the Rinzo editor, other than I have never used it.

    Before we can include such a plugin with STS, we need some assurance that it will not have an adverse affect on the rest of the product. This takes some of our own precious resources, which we prefer using towards making improvements to STS features directly.

    Of course, you are free to install this on your own, but you can also raise a jira for this and we can consider including this on the extensions page at startup.
