Hi there,
I'm starting to study Eclipse's RCP: I'm particularly interested in the
plug-in architecture that let me to plug new functionalities as I
complete / need them.

As a prototype, I've written a small Calculator RCP application: it provides
an extension point which every plug-in can add one or more arithmetic
operations to.

So far so good.

My problem is where I should process the extension point's extenders: I need
the UI completely created (to fill a TreeViewer with a bunch of operations
names, each for every plug-in) but not already shown and so for now I just
process the extenders (using the method described in [1] adapted to the 3.1
API) in my view's createPartControl() method, but this is obviously bad.

What is the best approach in this cases?

Regards
Mario

Maybe you can process extenders when plugin(have extension point) just
loaded
