I have never tried out WinEdit but after reading your message I took a quick glance at their homepage. It would not be useful for JEdit to 
implement the provided interaction with R-GUI since JEdit has to work on several platforms. But creating a button or shortcut for 
sending a complete file  / line / selection of code to R (the command line version) via pipe and to get back the result into JEdit shouldn't 
really be a problem. JEdit has a powerful macro language providing support for such things.

Best regards, Tobias.
