Developing JSDT

JSDT Source

The source for JSDT is in the Web Tools project (repository path /cvsroot/webtools).

The following plugin projects provide the core JavaScript editing:

  • sourceediting/plugins/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core
  • sourceediting/plugins/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.manipulation
  • sourceediting/plugins/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.ui

These plugins have no dependencies other than the Eclipse base (they dont depend on any WebTools). Using these plugins, a javascript project can be created.

The feature project for these is:

  • sourceediting/features/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.feature

The following plugin projects provide JSDT integration with WebTools, and provide support for javascript within HTML and JSP:

  • sourceediting/plugins/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.web.core
  • sourceediting/plugins/
  • sourceediting/plugins/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.web.ui

The feature project for these is:

  • sourceediting/features/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.web.feature

The following are the junits for JSDT:

  • sourceediting/tests/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.tests.compiler - (test suite is org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.tests.compiler.JSDTTestAll)
  • sourceediting/tests/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.tests.model - (test suite is org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.tests.model.AllJavaModelTests)

JSDT packages


The JSDT core plugin (org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core) provides the core JavaScript modeling.

Core plugin packages
package function
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core public apis for the module
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.ast The public apis for the read-only AST used by inference engines
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.compiler the public apis for the validator
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.compiler.libraries libraries which define the javascript language apis and the browser DOM apis
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.dom Modifiable JavaScript model DOM
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.dom.rewrite support for updating the dom

Generating the parser

Follow the instructions at for generating the parser. The parser grammer file is located in cvs at sourceediting/plugins/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core/grammer/js.g
