The editor functionality are mainly implementations of the Swing Text package APIs plus extension features such as Syntax Coloring, Code Completion, Word Matching, Abbreviations or Macros.

The editor consists of a library part (located under editor/lib and described in a separate arch document) and the module part (under src subfolder) that depends on NetBeans APIs specified in this document.

Editor defines APIs and SPIs both by
  • Providing java classes in public packages for further reuse.
    Most of the classes were created spontaneously (several years ago) without fulfilling of the rules imposed on APIs and SPIs at the present time.
    There is an ongoing work to revisit the existing classes and create stable APIs and SPIs (and possibly extract functionality into a submodule where appropriate). However this is a long-term task spanning several promotions.
  • Being sensitive to content of certain directories in xml layer.
