#41 Extract key from java/jsp/other editors


I have a suggestion on a new feature. I'm using the
Eclipse WTP JSP editor and sometimes thare are large
patches of structured text (text and tags). It would be
really interesting if it would be possible to do this:
1. Select all text to replace with a key.
2. Choose a menu option Externalize to resource bundle.
3. Wizard pops up whene you insert the key, choose
wheter to take out all double spaces and new carrige as
in html they often are irrelevant, choose with what to
replace it with, ex: <c:message key="the.chosen.key"/>;
but it should be user custamizible as i belive struts
has also a message tag and perhaps also other taglibs.
4. Finish, and you have the whole text replaced with
the taglib call that calls the key and the resource
bundle contains the entry.

I suppose the same thing could be usefull in the Java
or even C,C++ editor and others as well as most
platform offer libraries for i18n so the plugin should
detect the editor and offer the reasnoble choices for
substitution, so allow users to submit their editors
reasnoble compleations to the repo in some manner.
