jedit getting a syntax tree from your traces

When I do not use the NetBeans IDE for editing, I'm using jEdit.
It is a java based editor with many features.

In the last time, we used Outline and Configureabel Fold Handler Plugins
to get a syntax tree in the Sidekick window from the traces for a
faster navigation.

The Default Characters are { and } for starting an indentation and
going one step back.

You see an example in this image:

For the mode, the folding mode must be set to explicit.
You can also configure you're own strings including regular expression,
which I've also used to get a "syntax tree" from an old variant of the trace,
without changing something in the trace.
