Extending the monitoring, profiling, and testing functions
This guide is intended for developers who extend the monitoring, profiling,
and testing functions.
The test and performance tools provide an integrated infrastructure with a number of extensible
tools including testing, tracing and profiling, tuning, logging, monitoring analysis, autonomics,
and administration tooling.
This programming guide offers some guidelines for
extending the test and performance tools through a number of
tutorials, samples and reference APIs. Tutorials, Samples and APIs
will be continuously added to this guide as the tools themselves evolve.
This guide assumes that you are familiar with Eclipse basics,
such as how to contribute an extension, what an
is, and so on. Readers who are unfamiliar with these topics should
read the Platform Plug-in Developer Guide
