on Creating. You will be told the following:
Plugins - Creating
Plugins are created in Gel by implementing the
com.gexperts.gel.GelAction interface. This interface is contains a
variety of methods that are called by Gel when required. To package
your plugin, place it into a jar and modify the jar manifest such
that it contains an entry as follows:
Where classname is the classname of the plugin implementing
GelAction. Note that this class must have a zero argument constructor.
Source code for all plugin classes is contained in
Gel/plugin/src/src.jar. Plugin authors are encouraged to examine this
source for a better understanding of how plugins work. Additionally,
the source jar includes the code for the JRefactory Pretty Printer
plugin as an example.
