Evaluate support for inline problem markers in SonarLint

Eclipse 4.14 (= 2019.12) added support to show problem markers inline. There’s a screenshot in the “New & Noteworthy” at https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.14/platform.php#show-markers-as-code-minings .

The feature is still quite new and there are a few issues to be worked out (e.g. behaviour when code is still being edited, see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=553849 ).

Would it be possible to add support for inline markers for the markers added by SonarLint?

Hi @erik-brangs

I already noticed this new API, and I did some proof of concept last year. Not sure displaying issues as code minings is the good way to use this feature. What I was considering is to use it to show issues secondary locations:
https://jira.sonarsource.com/browse/SLE-306

Another idea would be to display additional information (like method cognitive complexity).

Anyway thanks for the feedback, this is appreciated.
