Hi,

Could somebody please help me find out how to create a plugin in e4? All tutorials I came about show how to create an application - www.vogella.de/articles/Eclipse4RCP/article.html#plugin_creating_applicationxmi and home/ff/tutorial.pdf. But I don't need application, I need just a plugin.

So any help is very welcome Smile

Best regards, Eugene.

Hi,

Do you mean that you just want create a separate plug-in, which will use new e4 UI features?

Best regards, Arthur.

I'm looking for the same information. I want just create a tooling plugin to run within the SDK IDE.

regards,

Cristiano

For that the 3.x books apply as they are - the SDK has not broken an API.

Hey Tom,

Just to confirm, since this is puzzling my head... Smile

If I want to create a menu item in the java perspective that will opens a view and a editor I must use 3.x extensions points in plugin.xml?

My thinking was that I would create a model fragment project being it's host or the platform, or ide or sdk or any other eclipse project and use all the cool stuffs of e4...

thanks

Cristiano

Yes - pure e4 e.g. doesn't even support editors at the moment! We
started a test project some time ago (called SimpleIDE) to define a
completely new IDE simply on top of EAP but if you want to contribute
e.g. to the Java Perspective using plugin.xml is the way to.

What you can still adopt is the DI stuff using the so call e4 bridge
(e.g. the e4 tools editor is an example of how to make use of such it).
