Hi,

Thanks in advance.

Jucy is oss which kind of says it all: the source is the documentation .. sadly.

Though I try to keep the sourcecode as readable as possible so don't let that deter you.

To extends Jucy you should make yourself familar with eclipse rcp development.
Jucy is an rcp app so to extend it you can use all the component of eclipse (especially if you wan to provide new Windows or extend usermenus (command api) ).
One example the ADL search usues primarily eclipse gui and registers a listener with the DCClient class (Observer pattern is quite common) to watch for searches.


Additionally there are some further plugin points defined inside Jucy itself that led your for example change behaviour of existing components (ADL ,Smileys, Country plugin all use such plugin points).


If you have something concrete in mind you might want to describe the feature you want... maybe I could give you some steps where to start or how I think it could be done.
