java – Can I define a view in eclipse which shows html files? – Education Career Blog

I wonder if there is a way to define a view in eclipse which can render and show html files or with other words a view which works like a browser! I mean a view for an eclipse plugin.

For example if I can define a browser based on org.eclipse.swt.browser and associate it to viewcontentprovider?

I don’t want to open an html file within eclipse editor. I am writing an eclipse plugin and I want to open some html forms or xforms in a view instead of eclipse internal web browser or an external web browser.


Just rightclick your html file in eclipse and select Open with -> Web Browser.


You can download the Aptana eclipse plugin. It has some WYSIWYG capabilities.
