I am trying to add a new entry into the context menu in our application. I want it to get enabled when a certain condition is met. I have looked up for PropertyTesters and tried to give it a shot. This is what I have come up with.

<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.menus">
   <menuContribution locationURI="popup:org.eclipse.ui.popup.any?after=group.immunity">
            <command commandId="MultipleERPContext.commands.sampleCommand" id="com.rac.samplecmd">

    <extension point="org.eclipse.core.expressions.propertyTesters">        


public class ERPTester extends PropertyTester 
    public boolean test(Object arg0, String arg1, Object[] arg2, Object arg3) 
        System.out.println("Reached the method test");
        return true;


Everything seems to be fine...but somehow, that menu entry is not coming up at all. Moreover, I am not able to see my 'test' method getting hit.

Requesting you to share your thoughts on it.

thanks, Pavan.
