extending WTP [message #178492] Mon, 04 September 2006 17:26 Go to next message

Hi,

Could you point me to some documentation on how to extend WTP/WST? I need
to know more about how to create/customize wst wizards and also the
schema/definition of the WTP extension points.

I need this information for a university project, however I'm absolutely
unable to find any usefull information on the Web. My specific target is
to extend the webservices wizard to create java bean webservices by
decorating a java class with annotations. Is it possible to be done with
wtp?

Regards,
Hristo

Hi Hristo,

from my experience, I tried to extend the WTP Javascript editor, there
is almost no documentation on this topic. And unlike the Eclipse
plattform itself, the WTP projects (at least the js editor) are that
nicely designed and refactored to be extended.
I guess the main problem is this: Lots of code was contributed from
other IBM products (like Rational Application Developer) and is only
integrated from a functional point of view.

Hristo,
what you're trying to do is possible. As Jörn wrote, documentation on the
extension points in WTP is not what it could be. I have some information on
the extension points for the Web services wizards, however, it needs to be
cleaned up somewhat before getting posted to the Web for general use.
Unfortunately we have not had the opportunity to do this so far. Your best
bet in the near term is to examine how our own Axis plugins [1] extend the
platform - Not an ideal approach, but one that has worked for a few others.

[1] Axis plugins:
org.eclipse.jst.ws.axis.consumption.core
org.eclipse.jst.ws.axis.consumption.ui
org.eclipse.jst.ws.axis.creation.ui

Cheers - CB.
