Tips on developing Eclipse plugins – I.

Sunday, December 16th, 2007

I have been recently working on a new JetMinds product (details will be disclosed soon) which included developing set of Eclipse plugins containing (but not limited to) custom editors with syntax coloring, editor outline, content assistant and other various tools similar to ones already available in Eclipse’s Java editor.

I have encountered several problems regarding Eclipse complexity, the lack or obscurity of the documentation and examples etc. That’s why I began to wrote this series of articles. This is not striving to be complete guide as I just wanted to pinpoint some concepts and ideas I found interesting.

In this article I try to cover:

  • UI (SWT) thread issues
  • Getting reference to an active editor
  • Some IFile issues
  • Opening file in its editor
