How to write plug-ins for Eclipse is not something that could be covered in a forum like this. The topic is way too
However, www.eclipse.org has some excelent articles that you can download on doing this. The book The Developers Guide to Eclipse is a GREAT resource for how Eclipse works underneath... How to write extensions and plug-ins for Eclipse. How to use SWT... (I haven't found a complete book on SWT... but this covers the basics and if yo u know Swing, you can transfer the ideas... And the www.eclipse.org site has several forums and newslists to subscribe to).
I'm using the above book right now to learn how to do just that.
Yeah... it's not an easy task, but as an extensible IDE and platform... I think it's cool and it's FREE! And runs on Linux, Mac and Windoz.
