Provide automatic link to functions and procedures in Esql as in Java

In Broker (ACE) toolkit with Eclipse, on Java compute nodes, it is standard to get to local or standard functions by hovering on the function + Ctrl key. On esql nodes, there is no such functionality. We have to manually search for the local functions etc. Was hoping to get the esql nodes to the standard eclipse practice of auto links to the function (at least to the locally created function as opposed to standard broker functions). I have uploaded a word file with a picture of ESQL (no links) vs JAVA (links)
