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.
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).
