I would like to create an eclipse plugin that adds a new category and a component in the palette. For example I just implemented a simple extension of JLabel and I would like it to be added to the palette. The expected output is once I load this plugin, the standard palette of WindowBuilder will include my new component. Which extension points should I use? Which classes should I implement ? Do I need to have any other configurations ? I would really appreciate it if someone could point me through a "framework" or steps I can follow to realize this. I have already tried to follow a document I found that describes how to add new components (but without success).

This is covered in the New Components Tutorial.

WB is also open source, so it provides hundreds of examples of how to do this within its own code base.

Thank you for your reply. Could you kindly recommend a simple example that I could perhaps import and see ?

Cheers !

Mohamed
