|Re: [pdt-dev] Two AST models and parsers|
One of JDT AST models contains also logic for FlowAnalysis.
At first look PDT ASTs works like in JDT, butâ Older (JDT like) AST contains binding resolver, which using compiler AST and sometimes whole DLTK TI framework.
Older AST (JDT like) is mostly used directly in UI with many utils, functions and widget ported from JDT (many of them still contains java/jdt keyword in comments and strings). And as I see, it is always created while using editor. He has ability to record his changes.
Second AST (compiler subnamespace) its created for DLTK integration, but it also used in outline, syntax coloring etcâ This AST is cashed by DLTK
Maybe will be possible to transform from one to another (by special visitor), instead of duplicating parsers.
