Extending Eclipse monitoring, profiling, and testing functions
Previous Page Home Next Page

Add a class for the action

The class that was specified in the markup must be created to take care of the invocation of the plug-in. Create a class named org.eclipse.hyades.demo.analyzerview.ViewAction1 that extends org.eclipse.jface.action.Action. Right-click on ViewAction1 in the Package Explorer view. Click Source > Override/Implement Methods.... Choose the Action run() method. Click OK.

The method run() in ViewAction1 will be invoked when a user clicks on the analyzer's Open With option. A plug-in developer may decide to put code in run() to invoke the view class. However, let's test what has been written so far to make sure everything is working.

Launch the Runtime Workbench in Debug mode, then go to the Profiling and Logging perspective. Import a Profiling File or profile something briefly. Right-click on a monitor in the Profiling Monitor view, go to Open With: the option Demo Analyzer View should be available. Put a breakpoint on the ViewAction1 run() method. Clicking on the Demo Analyzer View menu item should invoke the ViewAction1 run() method.
