Good place to start? [message #67728] Fri, 14 April 2006 22:36 Go to next message

Hi All,

I want to extend the XSD editor in web tools platform. I just want to add
a popup action on xsd elements in the various views, as well as making a
custom editor pane available. This is so that, for a given xsd file, I
can use the same interface to provide an easy way (nice gui) to edit the
XMLBeans configuration (.xsdconfig) file. At the moment I'm fairly new to
plugins and the xsd editor. Could someone suggest a good information
source (few links) to get me to a point where I can identify the necessary
extension points and how to interact with them. Please note, at this
stage I don't need to edit the schema document just the corresponding
xsdconfig document...I just need to attach several actions to the menu
for xsd elements and a custom editor pane to the xsd multipage editor.

Cheers
Adam

Adam,

The XSD project only provides a very simple sample XML Schema editor.
Likely you want to extended the one provided by WTP so best to ask on
the WebTools newsgroup about that editor. Popups you can add via the
popup extension point, but additional views within the editor you'll
need to provide by extending the editor class.
