Hi,

i have created one test plugin for eclipse, I have both plugin.xml as well as all the jar and all the classes. but i dont know how to attach it to Ecplise.
as per one website the following has been given:

Edit the Plug-in Development preferences by selecting the Window->Preferences menu item. Expand the Plug-In Development list item. Select Target Platform and click on the Not in Workspace button on the right hand side. You will note the selected items in the list to the left of this button are all now checked. Finally click on the OK button to accept these changes

But i can see anything name as plug-in development under window --> preference. where can i locate this ? or is there any other alternative?

Please help.

You need to have the plug-in development environment installed in Eclipse for developing and testing plug-ins.

If you don't have it installed, you can install it via the Eclipse software update facility (Help / Software Updates).
