Hi,

from what I've been able to find, there is no "Pluglet" concept in Eclipse. They currently exist under IBM Rational Systems Architect (RSA): link. They describe the functionality as such: Quote:
Pluglets are small Java applications that are used to make minor extensions to the workbench in a simple and straightforward way. Pluglets are written in Java and reside in a pluglet project. The pluglet can be tested in the same instance of the workbench just like any other Java application. Pluglet authors can use the Java development environment, and they have access to the application programming interfaces (APIs) of the workbench plug-ins to extend and implement the existing pluglets.


What I've found is a previous post on this, but that never got any replies.

Does anyone know if there has been any activities relating to this? Since it can be done in RSA, it should be doable in Eclipse. Might there the patent related issues implementing this in Eclipse?

Thankful for any insight that can be given into this.

Best Regards,

Anders

I know we have an incubator plugin that introduces the notion of a dynamic bundle. You can write simple commands in java and they're deployed into your running eclipse in a kind of scripts menu. You can check them out from CVS:

:pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/eclipse
platform-incubator/ui/other/org.eclipse.ui.tools
platform-incubator/ui/features/org.eclipse.ui.tools.feature
