Decision Engine BOM2XOM ARL editor needs auto-completion

The Bom2XOM mapping field does not auto-complete entries when using the Decision Engine instead of the classic rules engine.
The ARL based field don't respond to CTRL + SPACE so you have to manually type in all the code

    And while you are implementing this change can you also make the editor box extendable as 6 lines of code is not large enough to work with for complex B2X snippets.

    Actually the requested feature consists in asking to fix the regression in the BOM2XOM mapping and ruleflow editors.
    The auto completion is actually not the only thing missing, the errors are not underlined in red as well.

    This is indeed a "must have".
