SQL Editor in NetBeans E-mail

Introduction

One area that is improved significantly in NetBeans IDE 5.0 is the SQL Editor. This tip talks about that.

Details

One area that is improved significantly in NetBeans IDE 5.0 is the SQL Editor. In fact, there never was an SQL Editor before. In NetBeans IDE 4.1 -- and the releases before that -- you had a very small space where you could type SQL commands for sending to the database:

In the screenshot above, you really need to look for the space for typing SQL commands, it's very small. In NetBeans IDE 5.0 and above, you have a proper editor to use (click to enlarge):

What makes it a "proper" editor? Well, syntax highlighting, for example. And when you right-click in the editor, you get a pop-up menu with some cut/copy/paste menu items. And, one really cool side effect of having an editor is that you can (in not more than a few minutes) extend it. For example, here's a new action that I added to the SQL Editor's pop-up menu:

Not bad, huh? Editors are really cool, because you can extend them. How? How can you extend them? How can a menu item such as the one above be added to an editor?
