I've been trying to create a plugin that enables the user to perform an operation on a selection of files.

For that, I think I need to add a menu contribution, a handler and a command. The menu contribution should add an entry to the top level popup menu. In fact, I would like to have two entries (associated with their commands, resp. handlers) being part of a submenu in the popup menu.

However I'm getting confused on how to embody this in the plugin.xml.

1) How should I structure the menuContribution in order to get the requested structure:

Walb tools
+-------- Operation 1
+-------- Operation 2

2) How can I retrieve the set of selected items when an operation is requested.

Any suggestions?

Are you writing a plugin for Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) or a model based Eclipse4 RCP application?
