Trying to make a Custom StatusLine

I am new in JFace and I'm trying to make a custom StatusLine. I'm not allowed change the JFace source code, so these are some of the problems I have encountered in trying:

Is there any way to change the layout of the StatusLine or use a "Custom StatusLine"?

How I can set the StatusLineManager or StatusLine used by eclipse to use a mine?

I see that StatusLineManager is created in createStatusLineManager() of ApplicationWindow. How I can tell eclipse to use "MyApplicationWindow" (with createStatusLineManager method () overwritten) extending from ApplicationWindow as the main window of my application?

Thanks and sorry for my English.
I agree. Here's the link:
