Re: [ide-dev] Common Language Infrastructure

IMHO most important would be some kind of cross-language workspace index (i.e. a global symbol table), which contains and maintains 
information about what external symbols have been consumed and are exposed by a certain file.

Well, let's get right to it. Mickael Istria raised a bug on JDT to have to port over to DLTK since they have the same roots. (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=415563)

It's not a bad idea, but it does bring up an area that we've sorely been lacking, a common language infrastructure. There are bits and pieces here and there including Xtext (which is more than a bit or piece), as well as the LTK in the platform that we in the CDT use to co-ordinate our refactoring, and of course DLTK itself.

I'd like to open the floor though. What do you think we would need in a common language infrastructure? Would it really help or is there really nothing in common? If you work on a language project, what do you have that could be used to kickstart this (e.g. CDT's build system).
