Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) for software. It also represents an ideal, incorporating modularity, extensibility, and community. Contributing to Eclipse: Principles, Patterns, and Plug-Ins is therefore significantly more than a book about how to write plug-ins for the Eclipse framework. The book--by software patterns guru Erich Gamma and "extreme programming" exponent Kent Beck--explains how new Eclipse modules should interact with existing software elements, and make themselves further extensible. It also emphasizes the importance of packaging new plug-ins and making them available to others as new Eclipse features. The book's emphasis is on community, and helping the Eclipse project grow and improve.

That said, this book is an excellent how-to guide. Gamma and Beck take the time to carefully detail a couple of model plug-in projects--including the industry-standard Hello World exercise--and take care to explain the highly visual Eclipse development process one step at a time. They don't unleash bushels of source code on the reader, but nonetheless manage to walk the reader through a series of progressively more elaborate extension projects that exercise some of the most exciting parts of the Eclipse framework. As you'd expect from a book involving Gamma, discussion of patterns appears with increasing frequency toward the book's conclusion, enabling the reader to expand on the authors' shared wisdom and understand the Eclipse design better. --David Wall

Topics covered: How to extend the Eclipse development environment--both in the narrow sense of writing code that makes the software do something new, and in the broad sense of participating in the Eclipse community. Specific coverage addresses extension points, markers, perspectives, and help. There's also a guide to the Eclipse architecture, framed as a series of "pattern stories."


This book encourages tool building by laying bare the design of an excellent tool platform, Eclipse, and encourages design by building a typical tool extending Eclipse. This tutorial on creating custom tools also provides an explanation of a highly effective software design philosophy. The authors revive the lost art of supporting existing work by building tools. This book improves the software developers skill set by building little tools, and gradually growing those tools into better-than-professional quality products to help a whole community of developers. This book revives that highly-effective practice of tool writing and provides lessons along the way that tool building and design are two of the most leveraged skills for software developers.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Yes, this book is definitly worth it's price. I'm used to have it lying beside my keyboard while coding plugins. Even after a long time of coding in Eclipse you'll see your self spending some time and learning about some special concepts from Eclipse. There are not so much codesections that could be copy&pasted, but they will show you how to gather your information yourself, without long and ugly examples.
The TestDrivenDevelopment was very new to me and so I had my problems extracting some details from the code. There are some Graphs created with their own tool called Spider which I found also not to be that useful.

I had played around with plugins before, but this book opens you new horizonts. It helps you not only to write eclipse plugins, but to write them WELL-DONE. I was really intrigued by the book, and in particular by the depth and power of the eclipse architecure.
Many practical examples, useful patterns, and a concise, entertaining style round up the picture, not to mention the practical demonstration of implementing XP and Test Driven Development.

What I would expect if there was NO docs for eclipse 5. November 2004
Von Manuel A. Ricart - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I don't like this book as a book on writing plugins for eclipse for the following reasons:

1) This book's 'exploratory' approach tries to show you how to search (the hack approach) through the installed plugins for excerpts that you can copy/paste/edit. It would have been more useful if the authors used a 'tutorial' approach that constrains the example to documented basics (many different examples that then integrate/or not).

2) As expected (and tiring if you have other book from these authors), JUnit integration is the example developed throughout the book. This may satisfy the need for some types of plugins (code oriented plugins), but leaves much to be desired if you want to develop other kinds of tools.

3) The samples are outdated in 3.0, and the main example won't work/run in 3.0 (even if you download their project source). If you try to follow along, you will quickly be disapointed once you run into that snag. I am sure that under 2.x it works great.

4) This book is useful as a way of seeing a small example built up. However, because of #3, this all becomes useless once the plugin doesn't 'work'.

As with most books that cook a long example as a way of teaching, rather than as a way to support other knowledge, much of the time is spent on explaining how to cook things for the example. For me this doesn't work, as I want something focused that instructs me, rather than a evolving code-walkthrough of a particular example. To me this is boring, and has no use after the initial read.

This book would be great if it was 1/2 as long, and focused on the patterns for the plugins instead, not presume to be an intro to plugin development.

Different is good 3. September 2004
Von Ernest Friedman-Hill - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"Contributing to Eclipse" is a great read. More importantly, as someone who is in the middle of their first major Eclipse plugin development project, I learned a lot -- even though I've previously read every other available book on the topic. Gamma and Beck take you through the development of a fairly sophisticated plugin, step by step. Perhaps most welcome, the plugin they develop isn't a syntax-highlighting text editor (an example that's already been done to death,) but a set of tools for running JUnit tests on Java code!

This is the only book I've seen that discusses testing and Test-Driven Development of plugins, a must for serious plugin developers. As you'd expect from the developers of JUnit, they use JUnit to test every piece of functionality they add. Surprisingly, even though you'd expect some confusing in writing about using JUnit to test a JUnit plugin, there's none. Gamma and Beck are both excellent writers, and they know this subject matter inside out.

A word of warning: this is neither an introduction to nor a reference for Eclipse plugin programming. I don't think I would have gotten nearly as much from this book if I hadn't read "Eclipse in Action" and "The Java Programmer's Guide to Eclipse" first. But if you've gotten beyond the novice level with Eclipse, I guarantee you'll learn something by reading this book.

Excellent tutorial and guide... 28. November 2003
Von Thomas Duff - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As I move more into the world of Java and Websphere development, I'm spending more and more time in the Websphere Studio Application Developer (WSAD) IDE. This is built on the open source Eclipse framework and allows you great flexibility in extending the package to include tools that you write and incorporate into your workspace. But while it may be possible for you to write your own tools, you'll need to have a good resource to guide you through the process. This is the book to do that.
Erich Gamma is well known as one of the "Gang Of Four" who wrote the classic Design Patterns book. Kent Beck is the father of Extreme Programming. Given the pedigree of these two authors, you know that there will be plenty of proper programming techniques and concepts that underlie each chapter. They also stress that to properly build tools for Eclipse, you have to understand the platform and work with it. They spare no effort in making sure that understanding is present each step of the way.
The book works through a sample plug-in to help you run JUnit tests on your code. The style closely follows an Extreme Programming type development cycle. The basic functionality is built and tested, and then more comprehensive features are added. By the time you finish the book, you should be well on your way to understanding tool writing for both your own work or for possible product sale.
IBM has concentrated on the Eclipse platform for the development of a rich client that can run web applications. Because of the extensible nature of Eclipse, this could lead to multiple opportunities for add-on features that could easily be integrated into the new client. By using the concepts in this book, you can put yourself ahead of the curve as IBM moves forward in the Lotus area.
This is an excellent book if you are looking to build tools (for yourself or others) for either Eclipse or WSAD. Very readable and filled with essential knowledge you need for this type of development.

Zen and the Art of Eclipse 31. Juli 2004
Von Lee Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Once you get past the interesting writing style, this is a pretty cool book written by two of the giants in the industry. This is a particularly good book, if you are interested in Eclipse plugin development and JUnit testing. The tutorial is pretty comprehensive and the book example evolves in a natural way. The only downside is that this book is targeted at Eclipse 2.1 rather than 3.0 (which is no wonder given that it predates 3.0 by more than six months). This doesn't really detract from the book because most of the examples are fairly generic and can be made to run in Eclipse 3.0 with minimal effort.

A great resource for anyone that wants to extend Eclipse 10. November 2003
Von tpruett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Eclipse is the name of both an open source IDE and the extensible framework that it is built upon. A little experience of using Eclipse as an IDE, and a desire to extend the framework further are needed for this book. Before you know it, you'll be developing your first plug-in. Of course, it's a 'Hello World', but it introduces the concepts you need to go on to bigger and better things. The 'bigger and better' thing the book provides is a JUnit plug-in that performs automatic unit tests during builds. The authors don't just teach you how to build a plug-in, but how to build a plug-in that 'plays well with others' and allows for your plug-in to be extended in the future. Wrapping up the book are a collection of 'pattern stories' describing some of the design patterns used in Eclipse. The clear writing style and the flow of topics will help you get up to speed and writing plug-ins in no time. If you need further details on a topic ample references to the Eclipse documentation or other books that will help you on the subject are provided. All-in-all this book is a great resource for anyone that wants to extend the functionality of Eclipse.
