Creating an Eclipse View

In the Eclipse Platform a view is typically used to navigate a hierarchy of information, open an editor, or display properties for the active editor. In this article the design and implementation of a view will be examined in detail. You'll learn how to create a simple view based on SWT, and a more advanced view using the JFace viewer hierarchy. We'll also look at ways to achieve good integration with many of the existing features in the workbench, such as the window menu and toolbar, view linking, workbench persistence and action extension.
