FAQ 22

Where do I find documentation for a given extension point?

At least three simple ways exist to find documentation for extension points:

  1. Use platform help. See Help > Help Contents > Platform Plug-in Developer Guide > Reference > Extension Point Reference
  2. Go online to the Eclipse Project documentation site
  3. While contributing an extension point using the PDE Manifest Editor, select the

    Extensions tab and choose Add > Add... > Generic Wizards > Schema-based Extensions > Details

Note that Search > Plug-in Search lets you search for all uses of a given extension point.
