Hi,

I'm looking to create a new project creator wizard, where I would simply
ask the user for a string, like their name, then I will create a new java
project by that name with some preset files. Something like:


New -> Project -> MyNewProjectType

- Ask user for their name
< JohnDoe

I create a new java project named JohnDoe with the following java files:

JohnDoe.java
JohnDoeAge.java
JohnDoeWhereabouts.java

The tutorials I found for this sort of thing are out of date and refer to
UIs that aren't part of Europa anymore. Is there some tutorial on how to
get this to work? I'm guessing this is a somewhat simple thing to do..

Thanks,
Mark

Hi,

Still looking for a pointer on this. Just went to the bookstore to find
the books on eclipse also quite outdated in terms of plugin development.

Isn't there some getting started guide?

Thanks

In your specific case, you need the org.eclipse.ui.newWizard extension
point.

We are currently working on the RCP Book 2nd edition... it should be out
by the end of this year updated to use the latest and greatest Eclipse.
