Welcome to the home page of the Pliny website for Pliny software
developers. Here you will find information useful to Java programmers who wish
to develop Pliny or Pliny-aware applications. Note: You do not
need to read this if you plan to be only a Pliny user. The audience for this
material is people like Java Programmers. If you are not one, stop reading this
This developer part of the Pliny web-site includes:
- A Little Reading: points you to some
materials that describe elements of the Eclipse plugin-in development
environment that is important within Pliny. We assume here that you are already
familiar with Java programming and the use of Eclipse as a Java IDE, but have
not developed an Eclipse plugin before.
- Introduction to the Plugins:
provides a brief introduction to the Pliny plugins.
- The uk.ac.kcl.cch.jb.pliny
Plugin provides an overview of the materials in this Plugin, which, in
turn, is the base plugin upon which Pliny is built.
- The Pliny Data Model provides an
overview of the underlying data model that drives Pliny
- Annotation/Reference area classes
provides an overview of most of the major underlying classes that implement
Pliny's Annotation/Reference area.
- NoteEditor classes provides an
overview of important classes that support the operation of the Pliny Note
- Resource Explorer classes and
data model describes the classes that implement the Resource Explorer,
and explains the data model it uses.
- Extension Point
resourceExtensionProcessor describes the Eclipse extension point
defined within Pliny to support integration between Pliny base and Pliny-aware
The JavaDoc API documentation for all the Pliny classes can be found
