Hi Christian, Russell,
A completion feature would be a great addition to Squirrel. Theres some
code done by Johan Compagner in the jEdit plugin that could be a
starting point for you, it loads up the names of the tables and columns
so that they can be displayed in different colours.
I'd like to see completion as either part of the core or as its own
plugin, I would prefer it wasn't tied to the jEdit plugin. If possible
I'd like it to work in the ordinairy Swing etxt entry area.
Theres a guy Patrick Connors who is currently working on an SQL parser
for Squirrel based on his ParserBuilder
http://parserbuilder.sourceforge.net/ code. By his own admission he is a
"Java idiot", his background is more Delphi. It might be worthwhile to
include him in your discussions as I could see that your completion code
could use a good parser. His email address is (pconnors at bigpond dot
net dot au).
Let me know if you need any help or just want to bounce ideas around.
