Description tomzi 2013-04-24 08:50:49 UTC
It is often the case that eg SQL statements are defined in some String literal and only later in the code being used.

see also 'Injected languages' on

class MyXlass {
static final SQL =
"select *  from products "
+ "where category like 'car' ";
MyService service;

public void execute() {

So usually all the SQL related boilerplate code is encapsulated and only the SQL stmt remains.

It would be great to have code completion for these String literals by:
1) call eg CTRL-space, 
2) select sth like 'Define Language'->'SQL'
3) select DB connection

now I should be able to use codecompletion like in .sql  files
