In `plugin.xml` for my application, I have

<extension
     point="org.eclipse.ui.menus">
  <menuContribution
        allPopups="false"
        locationURI="menu:org.eclipse.ui.main.menu">
     <menu
           id="ru.focusmedia.odp.arm.menus.arm"
           label="ARM"
           mnemonic="A">
        <command
              commandId="org.eclipse.ui.file.exit"
              style="push">
        </command>
     </menu>
     <menu
           id="ru.focusmedia.odp.arm.menus.arm"
           label="Help"
           mnemonic="H">
        <command
              commandId="org.eclipse.ui.help.aboutAction"
              style="push">
        </command>
     </menu>
  </menuContribution>
</extension>


and expect it to create two menus in the main menubar, each with one item. However, I get only one menu (ARM) which contains both items (and no Help menu at all). Why? And how do I get the desired result?

Change the id of your second menu to "ru.focusmedia.odp.arm.menus.help"
Because both menus had the same id only one menu with two entries were created.

Thanks! I was sure I entered different IDs in the "Extensions" editor tab originally, but apparently changed it along the way and didn't notice Embarrassed
