Create an WMB ESQL Editor that supports the concept of code assist templates
BACKGROUND: For a Java editor within Eclipse, it supports the concept of code assist templates to speed up development.
To see the Java templates: Window->Preferences->Java->Editor->Templates
A template is very much a programming language within Eclipse where you can control what would be added or where you want your cursor to end on any given statement, such as "for."
To invoke within the Java editor, the developer types the desired pattern ("for") and presses + Spacebar.
CURRENT USE WITHIN ESQL EDITOR: Code assist in a basic form exists within an ESQL Editor, but the "templates" part is hard-coded into the plugin code.
Also, the ESQL code assist doesn't have the flexibility of a Java code assist where you can hit the key to go navigate through the code fragment as you fill it out.
Finally, there is no "notes" section within code assist where the developer could look at a "case" statement and show a code fragment example. This is something that's available within the Java code assist.
PROPOSAL: Provide the ESQL editor with code assist features similar to Java code assist.
