Hi folks,

I have an Eclipse RCP application and would like to implement an "Alert View" to show the list of error alerts coming from my server.

The idea would be to have a new view that is not attached to any perspective but can be launched separately in a new window and detached, docked etc... how can I do that?

I have seen this before, for example in the JCTerm plugin, how can I implement something like that?

Hello again, I have found the following:

"A sticky view is a view that stays open across perspective switches. Once open in one perspective, the sticky view remains open in all perspectives hosted in that Workbench window. This is true even for perspectives that do not define that view as part of their layout. "

So, it seems sticky views are the ones I need, is that right?

Hey,

A view is not attached to a perspective (a perspective is just an
organization of views) so you can open your view any time using
IWorkbenchPage#showView().

If it's a view then the user can detach it as a new window and dock it
back. so for all the features you want you don't need to do any
programming, eclipse does it for you. (just don't declare your view as
standalone.)

try and read the documentation, you should be able to dot it pretty easily.
