Bundles, Extension Points, Extensions View for Eclipse 3.4

The BEPEB View is replacement for PDE's Plug-ins view. It allows you to explore:
  • Bundles
  • Extensions Points
  • Extensions

You can start with any one of these at the top level by using the toolbar settings. You can continue to expand the relationships between these objects to any level.

Several actions are supported in the context menu:

  • Open plugin.xml
  • Copy extension and extension element trees
  • Open Java Type specified by attributes which specify implementing Java classes.
For example, the Copy Extension action copied the following xml to the Clipboard:

Export a file containing the names and locations of the shared projects in the workspace.

I plan to make more enhancements to this view.

You can download it here.

This plug-in is experimental. So no guarantees. Use the plug-in at your own risk.
