Who This Book Is For
If you are a Java developer who is familiar with the Eclipse plug-in environment, this book covers the advanced concepts that you need to know to achieve true expertise. Prior experience in creating Eclipse plug-ins is assumed for this book.
Mastering Eclipse Plug-in Development shows you how to build an extensible application using custom extension points and dynamic OSGi services in Eclipse. Dynamic design patterns such as whiteboard and extender are covered along with specific techniques to deal with native and legacy code.
This book dives right into the details and teaches you how to define new JFace wizards and extend Eclipse with custom extension points. Then the book moves quickly on to the details of how to define new commands for the Eclipse console and how to include native code in a plug-in. You will engage with modular application design patterns and Thread Context ClassLoaders before getting the details on how to create as well as manage P2 sites and write help documentation for an Eclipse plug-in.
