Eclipse Plug-ins

I’m currently writing Eclipse plug-ins, leveraging the JWT project.

There’s a great book for learning how to program plug-ins, and they have a site for it: http://www.qualityeclipse.com/

If you use Eclipse, you should read Chapter One on the site (free); even if you aren’t programming plug-ins!  They go over all the features of Eclipse that you should know about.  There’s plenty of interesting reading in the other chapters – the previous IDE technologies that made their way into the app, how plug-ins work, how to build a basic plug-in, using SWT to develop great GUIs.

I’ll be releasing a project soon, complete with a help section, an update site, and all that you’d expect from an Eclipse plugin.  More on that in June!
