Editor for RDFiles in Bioclipse

Chemical reactions are a very important processes explaining our metabolism. More complex is its visual representation take account the mechanism. The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK) is a Java library for structural bio- and chemoinformatics which supports reactions between others.

So, I hacked up in Bioclipse code to provide this functionality with a new RDFEditor plugin. It is following the same structure than the SDFEditor plugin.

Apart from reading and rendering the reaction, it also reads and displays properties in a table. Important feature to find similarities and dissimilarities between reactions.
