Adding a view to the Profiling and Logging perspective
In order to make this analyzer view demo a useful one, the readers are expected
to have experience in developing an Eclipse plug-in using the PDE, as well as to have
TPTP installed on their Eclipse workbench.
Plugging an analyzer view into the Profiling and Logging Perspective is relatively simple.
It consists of 3 main tasks:
Creating the plug-in
Write a plug-in that extends the extension point
This adds an entry to the Open With menu.
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.
Add a class for the view
Add code into the view to handle the TPTP profiling data. This is the
part where the plug-in provides the user with its values.
Note: The TPTP correlation engines are also accessible in the Open With menu,
but they are implemented by extending the extension point
