From this one liner, I have no clue what you are trying to do. Also, I don't see the relation between a pom.xml (a maven build artifact) and creating views.
If you want some feedback, please provide more details what you are trying to accomplish, and what you already tried to do to accomplish that.

Still no clue of what you are trying to do.

If it that you are trying to programmatically open a (predefined) view, have a look at the following:

index.php/fa/38206/0/hi,

I am trying to create a sample view (windows > show view > sample view) for the existing plugin,
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
since i wanted to add a view to an existing plug-in, i edited the plugin.xml with the Manifest Editor, and in the Extensions tab i added Extension Templates by choosing Sample View.

Edited Plugin.xml :

 <extension
         point="org.eclipse.ui.views">
      <category
            id="com.example.cdt.plugin"
            name="Sample Category">
      </category>
      <view
            category="com.example.cdt.plugin"
            class="com.example.cdt.plugin.views.SampleView"
            icon="$nl$/icons/sample.png"
            id="com.example.cdt.plugin.views.SampleView"
            inject="true"
            name="Sample View">
      </view>
   </extension>


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I tried this procedure for new plugin and i was able to create the view (Image attached)
PS: Installed SDK is the view i have created.


Thank you.

Sorry for not providing the full details.

We are working on a custom IDE based on Eclipse CDT. It is required that a new "custom view" be added.
For instance:
‚Äč Just like the red-colored "Installed-SDK view" in the image

Following 2 things are tried:

1.With Extension
In the Extensions tab, I added Extension Templates by choosing Sample View.

2. In Plugin.xml :

plugin.xml snippet:

<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.views">
<category
id="com.exaleap.cdt.plugin"
name="SDK category">
</category>
<view
category="com.exaleap.cdt.plugin"
class="com.exaleap.cdt.plugin.views.InstalledSDKView"
icon="$nl$/icons/sample.png"
id="com.exaleap.cdt.plugin.views.InstalledSDKView"
inject="true"
name="Installed SDK View">
</view>
</extension

2a).To get list box:

Updated InstalledSDKView.java file and checked

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.*;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.*;

public class InstalledSDKView {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Display display = new Display();
Shell shell = new Shell(display);
shell.setLayout(new GridLayout(3, true));

// Create three checkboxes
new Button(shell, SWT.CHECK).setText("Checkbox 1");
new Button(shell, SWT.CHECK).setText("Checkbox 2");
new Button(shell, SWT.CHECK).setText("Checkbox 3");

shell.pack();
shell.open();
while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
display.sleep();
}
}
display.dispose();
}
}
Output
======
Changes are not reflected.

Am I missing anything? Are there new approaches we can try to achieve this?

Thanks

You are trying to 'create an Eclipse view' (google around for many examples)

The code inside your InstalledSDKView class will never create a view, this is code for creating a standalone application.

Have a look at tutorials:
https://wiki.eclipse.org/FAQ_How_do_I_create_my_own_view%3F
https://help.eclipse.org/2020-03/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.isv%2Fguide%2Ffirstplugin.htm
https://www.eclipse.org/articles/viewArticle/ViewArticle2.html

Probably you want to know about perspectives too:
