DITA Editor for Eclipse

Are there any plans to create a DITA editor for Eclipse or WebSphere
Studio?

Hi, Joel:

I can't vouch for their relative merits, but I have noticed
the following Eclipse solutions for XML editing.


XML editors with Eclipse pluggability:

Vex (Open Source)
http://vex.sourceforge.net/

XML Buddy (Open Source and commercial)
http://xmlbuddy.com/2.0/products.html

<oXygen/> (Commercial with free trial)
http://www.oxygenxml.com/

Eclipse XML - XSLT Editor (Commercial with free trial)
http://www.japisoft.com/exslt/


Programming editors with Eclipse integration and XML support:

SlickEdit
http://www.slickedit.com/products/pr_eclipse_plugin.php


Eclipse suites with XML editors:

MyEclipse
http://www.myeclipseide.com/ContentExpress-display-ceid-53.html


For the future, there's an Eclipse editor initiative:
http://solareclipse.sourceforge.net/


In principle, a validating XML editor should be able to author
DITA files, though a better editing experience requires some
vocabulary-sensitive styling and behaviors from the vendor.

Of course, there are a number of XML Editors outside of Eclipse
as well.


Hoping that's useful,
