    Building and using the Graphical Designer from Source

    Max Mustermann Newbie

      Hello

      I am really new to eclipse Plugin Development and jBPM. I want to extend the Graphical Process Designer from the sources. So I got them by CVS like it ist explained in the corresponding wiki article.
      I checked out jbpm.3 from the CVS HEAD and now I need to build the process designer from the sources to add my own extensions. I read how to do this in the Eclipse Platform Plugin Guide. In this Guide they clicked on the plugin.xml File and wrote there which Extension goes to which Extension Point. Well that sounds easy but in the jbpm-gpd sources there are so many plugin.xml files. I do not know why they are there and which one is the right to get the Process Designer testet.
      I tried the one from org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.ui and added the HelloWorld View from the Eclipse Simple Plugin Tutorial to that file. But I was not able to chose it, when I started a new Eclipse from the link on the Overview tab provided by the Plugin Perspective.

      Can anyone give me an explanation on how I can build the designer and test this freshly built version?

      Thank you
