Hello Eclipse Community,

what is the preffered way to build a custom e4 application based on Eclipse IDE?

I have to develop a plugin which contains the whole application (Parts, Commands etc.)
This plugin has be integrable into another Eclipse-IDE based applications. Custom perspectives, preferences etc. must appear in standard Eclipse-IDE dialogs. The default application must contain only custom stuff along with standard Eclipse-IDE dialogs.

How should the custom plugin contribute at the application - perhaps by contributing application model fragments?

What is the way to strip standard Eclipse-IDE so that there is no standard parts/perspectives but standard dialogs and wizards? And what is the way to include standard IDE parts/perspectives into custom application?

.. try to answer my complex newbe-driven question.

All the explorers and dialogs all provided by some plugins and it is rather heavy and unusual to customize them. As far I understand I have to program explorers and dialogs in some way.

And yes, application model fragments seem to be there, search for Eclipse4Modularity in web...

...just for all you Eclipse newcomers out there:

I have managed to build that IDE-based application without curtailments. I configured to use Main Menu, Project Explorer, Console View, Problems View, Progress etc. All that I have not coded but reused just like I planed to. The Preference and Property Pages show only custom contents and my e4 editor plugin contributes via fragments.

so it is possible, good luck
