  • Roo Add-on creation steps

    I want to play around and build an add-on for Roo. Can someone point me to the documentation on how to get started with building an Add-on?

    New addon

    well, I took the following steps:

    0.) start Roo console
    1.) project --topLevelPackage your.base.package.roo.addon.myaddon --template ROO_ADDON_SIMPLE
    3.) perform eclipse
    4.) import it into eclipse and start playing with the commands and actions, add few commands
    5.) here it becomes disruptive: Learn Maven ! You need minimal maven knowledge
    6.) To actually write a pretty useful addon you must checkout the ROO project itself and browse the sources. Almost every functionality that ROO provides is a ADDON so at least it's full of real life examples
    7.) Enjoy :-)
