Are instructions for loading the LogicDesigner source as its own project? [message #234812] Wed, 30 May 2007 20:40 Go to next message

Now I would like to the same for the logic designer. Is there a stock
manifest and plugin.xml file? Or do I have to generate the lot from scratch?

Is there a better way to learn how to build freeform figures?

Confused in Ottawa

Turns out that I don't need to learn about FreeForm figures for now.
However, I did succeed in creating a rcp plugin, here's the manifest:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Bundle-ManifestVersion: 2
Bundle-Name: Logicdesigner Plug-in
Bundle-SymbolicName: org.eclipse.logicdesigner
Bundle-Version: 1.0.0
Bundle-Activator: org.eclipse.logicdesigner.Activator
Bundle-Localization: plugin
Require-Bundle: org.eclipse.ui,
org.eclipse.core.runtime,
org.eclipse.gef,
org.eclipse.ui.views,
org.eclipse.core.resources,
com.cognos.ccl4j
Eclipse-LazyStart: true

It might be useful if these were released as standalone source plug-ins
in the future - they would make a great start point for others
experimentation. Also they would make a great example of how to make gef
work with rcp commands/menus etc.

Cheers
