group is a query expression keyword.

Enable semantic highlighting in the source editor options - that'll recognize the difference correctly.
Comment 2 S. Ritter 2013-11-11 08:14:46 UTC
Enable semantic highlighting was/is activated.
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-11-13 06:32:08 UTC
then there must've been a parser error somewhere.

The IllegalStateException should've been c olored as a type if semantic highlighting would've worked.
Comment 4 Mike Krüger 2013-11-13 06:32:39 UTC
Can you reproduce that somehow ? (If so - can I get the source for that file?)
Comment 5 Mike Krüger 2013-11-18 05:11:24 UTC
I can't reproduce it - but judging from the screenshot I would say that semantic highlighting is not enabled.

That can happen if the file wasn't in a project with the build action 'compile'. Or that a parser error prevented the semantic highlighter to finsh.
