1.Why I’ve created the plug-in?
I was always missing a small functionality in Eclipse - a Favourite SAP T-Codes which we all know form SAP Menu. I know to you can call SMEN transaction using Alt+F8 but it does not fill the simplicity requirement. That's why I started to ask about the possibility to have favourite T-Codes view somewhere in ADT in Eclipse. I rather thought that Thomas, the product owner of ADT would say that they will implement this in one of next releases, but instead he encourage me to do it myself.
At first glance it was like WOW I hate Java, why I should do it myself when for the other it would take only some minutes, but then after few minutes I thought that this could be a really good exercise for myself to try to do something completely new in a language that is not my main programming language, or better said an a language which I don't use if I don't have to.
Thomas gave me some really good starting points by giving links to the blogs from SCN. Additionally I've started to search the web for the eclipse plug-in developments so I could get some more information about it. It was hard time for me, I've stopped this few times until I said, no this cannot be that hard. You're supposed to be a cleaver guy so small plug-in in Java should not be that hard.....Add a comment
