Format: Paperback
I found that most of this book offers very little detail above what is available in the Eclipse Developer's online help. Whenever it mentions the truly interesting / complex details, it is only to say "..which is outside of the scope of this book". Judging from reviews for other books, this is the best available book on plug-in development in Eclipse -- and if that's true, you're better off without a book at all.

Too many forward references. Oct. 21 2010
By skykam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book contains a lot of useful information and may be a good reference, but is a very difficult read for someone trying to learn plugin development. The main problem I have with the writing is that you get lost in the forward references. Rather than build up information as they go along, the authors suddenly discuss something that you've not encountered yet and then reference a section somewhere ahead in the book where they cover that topic. If it were once or twice that would be forgivable, but it's pervasive. It's like parts of the book were written backwards and turns reading the book into a constant random access page-flipping exercise.

I think this book could be excellent were it to be re-organized to eliminate the need for these forward references by building up the examples along the way while introducing the tools and techniques user/required as part of the process then leaving more complete and/or complex issues in the back in a technical reference section.

Eclipse Plug-ins Nov. 11 2009
By Eric Jain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Despite its huge size, this book isn't able to cover all of the Eclipse API in detail. For example, there isn't proper coverage of form editors and undo support.

There is an entire chapter devoted to GEF, but, like RCP, that seems like it needs to be a book of it's own in order to be useful. Btw I hope the RCP book in this series gets updated soon!

No complaints about the quality of the writing. Unlike many technical books this size, the writing doesn't degrade into lists and tables copied from the API documentation.

Didn't find any mistakes, but the book is bound to get outdated fast: The 3rd edition was written for Eclipse 3.4; the current version is now 3.5, and milestone builds are available for 3.6...

Very detailed reference, but takes a while to read. Sept. 14 2012
By Peter W Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book on the topic of Eclipse plugins. I've been using Eclipse for many years, but only recently have I started to write plugins. I must admit that I started (and re-started) reading this book several times, and only got a full appreciation of the content when I started writing my own plugin. I can imagine that somebody who just "reads" the content (as I did initially) might be quite confused by all the new concepts and terminology.

Now that I understand the major concepts in Eclipse, I find it very easy to understand this book, and to find associated information. The index is high quality, making it a great reference book for figuring out exactly which classes/methods you need to use to access the various Eclipse features.

My suggestion - type in and execute all the examples, and you'll quickly become an Eclipse expert!
this is a useless book Feb. 15 2014
By Bing Cheng - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a useless book. The worst thing is that the authors changed the book's name in their version updating. So I mistakenly bought two same books.

In the book, the book discussed many things that are not helpful after I go through.

To future readers, please don't buy this book like me and waste your money!
