Creating plug-ins to extend BMC Remedy Developer Studio

Using the public Developer Studio plug-in extension points, you can create plug-ins that extend its user interface as follows:

  • Add custom server object types to the All Objects list in AR System Navigator and to object lists in the Object List tab. For example, the following figure shows an All Objects list that contains a custom Hamburgers server object at the bottom of the list.

    (Click the image to expand it.)

    When users double-click the custom object type, an object list for that type opens and displays a list of objects supplied by the custom plug-in (see the following figure).

    To edit the custom objects, create a custom editor configured by the custom plug-in. In Eclipse, register the editor for the custom object type.
  • Add custom items to context menus for servers in the AR System Navigator.

  • Add custom items to context menus for object lists. The items can appear on menus for a specific object type or for all object types. For example, the following figure shows a context menu for active links that contains the following custom actions: Enable Workflow, Disable Workflow, and Set Execution Order.

  • Add custom rules to Analyzer.
    You can add rules for the Developer Studio Analyzer command by creating custom plug-ins that connect to the Analyzer plug-in through its public extension point. (For general information about Analyzer, see Using Analyzer to find problems in your applications.)
