With eclipse 3.6.1, I believe I can contribute menu to project explorer view's drop down list. The extension point description for org.eclipse.ui.viewActions states that we can now use org.eclipse.ui.menus to place commands in menus and toolbars as well. So, I define a new menu contribution under org.eclipse.ui.menus extension point. I specified the location URI as popup:org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer#PopupMenu?aft er=group.open, class = "" and allPopups = true. Under menu contribution, I have my menu (it's a dynamic cascading menu). I do not see my menu in the drop down for the project explorer. Am I missing something? Can someone point me to the correct procedure if I am doing it wrong?

Thanks!

menu:org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer
