Number one on my list, every time, is Eclipse: Building Commercial-Quality Plug-ins. I find it to be the clearest and most relevant book about Eclipse for the real-world software developer. Other Eclipse books focus on the internal Eclipse architecture or on repeating the Eclipse documentation, whereas this book is laser focused on the issues and concepts that matter when youre trying to build a product.-- Bjorn Freeman-BensonDirector, Open Source Process, Eclipse Foundation As the title suggests, this massive tome is intended as a guide to best practices for writing Eclipse plug-ins.

I think in that respect it succeeds handily. Before you even think about distributing a plug-in youve written, read this book.-- Ernest Friedman-HillSheriff, JavaRanch.comEclipse: Building Commercial-Quality Plug-ins was an invaluable training aid for all of our team members. In fact, training our team without the use of this book as a base would have been virtually impossible.

It is now required reading for all our developers and helped us deliver a brand-new, very complex product on time and on budget thanks to the great job this book does of explaining the process of building plug-ins for Eclipse.-- Bruce GruenbaumThis is easily one of the most useful books I own. If you are new to developing Eclipse plug-ins, it is a must-have that will save you lots of time and effort.

You will find lots of good advice in here, especially things that will help add a whole layer of professionalism and completeness to any plug-in. The book is very focused, well-structured, thorough, clearly written, and doesnt contain a single page of waffly page filler. The diagrams explaining the relationships between the different components and manifest sections are excellent and aid in understanding how everything fits together. This book goes well beyond Actions, Views, and Editors, and I think everyone will benefit from the authors experience.

I certainly have.-- Tony SaveskiThe authors of this seminal book have decades of proven experience with the most productive and robust software engineering technologies ever developed. Their experiences have now been well applied to the use of Eclipse for more effective Java development. A must-have for any serious software engineering professional!-- Ed KlimasJust wanted to also let you know this is an excellent book! Thanks for putting forth the effort to create a book that is easy to read and technical at the same time!-- Brooke HedrickThe key to developing great plug-ins for Eclipse is understanding where and how to extend the IDE, and thats what this book gives you.

It is a must for serious plug-in developers, especially those building commercial applications. I wouldnt be without it.-- Brian WilkersonIf youre looking for just one Eclipse plug-in development book that will be your guide, this is the one. While there are other books available on Eclipse, few dive as deep as Eclipse: Building Commercial-Quality Plug-ins.-- Simon ArcherEclipse has established itself as a dominant force in the application-development space.

Key to the success of Eclipse is the ability of developers to extend its functionality using plug-ins.This new edition of Eclipse: Building Commercial-Quality Plug-ins is the definitive, start-to-finish guide to building commercial-quality Eclipse plug-ins, with an emphasis on adding the sophistication and polish that paying customers demand. The book provides both a quick introduction to using Eclipse for new users and a reference for experienced Eclipse users wishing to expand their knowledge and improve the quality of their Eclipse-based products.Revised to take advantage of pure Eclipse 3.1 and 3.2 APIs, this widely praised bestseller presents detailed, practical coverage of every aspect of plug-in development and specific solutions for the challenges developers are most likely to encounter.

All code examples, relevant API listings, diagrams, and screen captures have been updated.Some Eclipse concepts--such as actions, views, and editors--have not changed radically, but now have additional functionality and capabilities. Other areas, such as the Eclipse plug-in infrastructure, have changed drastically due to the Eclipse shift towards an OSGi-based infrastructure.

This edition is fully updated to address these new advances for Eclipse developers.Includes a quick introduction to Eclipse for experienced Java programmersServes as a systematic reference for experienced Eclipse usersIntroduces all the tools you need to build Eclipse and Rational plug-insExplains the Eclipse architecture and the structure of plug-ins and extension pointsOffers practical guidance on building Eclipse user interfaces with SWT and JFaceShows how to use change tracking, perspectives, builders, markers, natures, and moreCovers internationalization, help systems, features, and brandingThis book is designed for anyone who wants a deep understanding of Eclipse, and every experienced developer interested in extending Eclipse or the Rational Software Development Platform.
