hello,

i want to make a drag and drop type interface on eclipse,eg.i should be able to drag n drop a circle on a canvas and generate java code for it.

i would want to make it as an eclipse plug-in

but im having problems understanding HOW to go about building plug-ins.

could anyone tell me online resources(ebooks,blogs) which may help me?

also,can anyone tell me HOW difficult doing it might be?

ANY help appreciated.thanks !
