Eclipse Plugin Development

I followed Jordan's link on Wiki and find this site: eclipsepluginsite is very helpful to learn developing Eclipse plugins. It provides a hand-on tutorial on how to develop a simple but fully functional eclipse plugin. I've decided to add it in my TODO list for this semester. I properly will take it slow and just do it as a side project beside my bug fix for WTP but will try to manage getting it done by end of this semester. From the first look, the tutorial seems to cover pretty well all the processes from Start (introductions of architectures) to Finish (shipping the plugin as a product) so I think, It will give me a very good fundamental knowledge on developing Eclipse plugins if I go through.

There are 14 chapters in total so the plan is 2 or more chapters per week.

Chapter 01: Introduction to Eclipse Plugin Development
Chapter 02: SWT (Standard Widget Tookit)
Chapter 03: JFace
Chapter 04: Perspectives
Chapter 05: Actions
Chapter 06: Dialogs and Wizards
Chapter 07: Views
Chapter 08: Track Resource Changes
Chapter 09: Preference Pages
Chapter 10: Properties
Chapter 11: Editors
Chapter 12: Builders Natures And Markers
Chapter 13: Help
Chapter 14: Internationalzation
