Adding Menu in Eclipse Main MenuBar

Hi All,

I have a task and i need some guidelines to acheive it....

here is the task...

I need to create a plugin which adds a Menu (let's say "MyMenu") in the MenuBar of the Eclipse when it is launched. And on selection of a MenuItem (let's say "Launch My App") under MyMenu, i should be able to launch my application which is again a plugin. This MyMenu should appear in whichever Eclipse version i install my plugin (Meaning, if i copy my plugin to any of the Eclipse plugins folder and on lauching of that particular version of Eclipse, the user should be able to see MyMenu in the MenuBar).

Please let me know how to start with this...

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea!!!
I agree. Here's the link:
