The annotation coding sample
This sample demonstrates how you can integrate the BPMN modeler with an external application.
In this sample we will use a plugin (org.eclipse.bpmn.sample.bugView) which shows a tree view of various bugs.
Our coding sample will consist in creating a new plugin, which will transform bugs into text annotations during a drag and drop operation.
Creating the plugin Create the plugin, make it dependent of org.eclipse.stp.bpmn.diagram and org.eclipse.stp.bpmn.sample.bugView.
Open the extensions tab and create a new extension for org.eclipse.core.runtime.adapters
