Hello,

we develop an application that is still based on Eclipse 3.x (it can be used as part of the IDE) and currently runs on the compatibility layer. Now I have to add a new view and thought this would be an opportunity to start with e4 (you have to start somewhere).

The 'What's new' section in the plug-in developer's guide mentions the new e4view element of the org.eclipse.ui.views extension point and it's easy to create a view with it. But how can I contribute to the view's toolbar? Since I've used the extension point, I have no application model or model fragment.

Where can I find more information on e4view or an example that has more than a view with a "Hello World" label?

Andreas

I had the same problem as the menu extension point did not seem to have any effects on e4view contributed parts.
My solution was to introduce an E3 ViewPart that bridges to E4. This allows to program in E4 style but make the code work in E3 (with compat layer), too.
Once the bugs are fixed to make e4view fully work, I will need to just contribute the E4 POJO directly instead of the the E3 Part...
