This article gives you an overview of how the Eclipse Platform supports XML (Extensible Markup Language) development. Eclipse does not support XML code editing right out of the box. However, because Eclipse is a platform-independent framework for building developer tools, you can add support for new languages relatively easily.
A multitude of XML plug-ins have been developed, and new ones are created all the time. This article focuses on the plug-in called XMLBuddy, because its feature-rich set contains most of the functions needed for XML document development. We do touch on other plug-ins when they provide a richer set of user options for specific tasks. This article will familiarize you with the basic XML editing features, but bear in mind that Eclipse is a dynamic frameset that puts an endless array of tools and features at your fingertips.
