I am new to eclipse, however there is some functionality I would like to add to exadel that would add code to the backing bean whenever someone drags and drops a component onto the jsp page. So for example, at drag and drop time commented information about the control would appear in the backing bean. Likewise, the commented information about the component would need to be deleted if the component was deleted off the page as well as update as the properties for the component are updated? Also, can someone point me in the direction of some good examples and tutorials of how to create/extend plugins.

Have a look at:

YourFirstPlugin

Eclipse Plug-in example-1

Eclipse Plug-in Example-2

Also, you can find tutorials/references about Eclipse Plugin development in your Eclipse IDE itself, under the menu Help -> Help Contents -> Platform Plug-in Developer Guide
