Build extensions for Eclipse one snippet at a time

Find out how to build a plug-in for Eclipse and Rational Application Developer V7. You can use this plug-in to define snippets that let you add code that follows enterprise standards. Similar to the Snippets view that comes with the Web Tools Project, this plug-in allows you to drag and drop pieces of code into the editor. We follow object-oriented best practices so the snippets can be loaded from any source, such as a database (like Apache Derby), filesystem, or Web service.
