JBuilder from Borland is an all-Java application written atop a generic IDE base. Inside the JBuilder OpenTools API lets you make the most of this environment by describing how you can extend and enhance the IDE itself. You can automate repetitive processes, or capture complex steps behind a simple wizard interface. You can interact with the IDE to augment its capabilities and make it easier to work with. You can interface the IDE with third party tools, such as version control systems and application servers. And, you can add innovative functionality that takes JBuilder in new directions.

JBuilder is, itself, a collection of OpenTools built upon a generic IDE base. The OpenTools API lets you hook into and interact with most facets of the JBuilder IDE. This book covers JBuilder versions from 7 through 10 (most APIs still apply in JBuilder 11). Starting with the basics of how JBuilder automatically discovers new tools and loads them into the IDE, this book covers many aspects of the OpenTools API. From creating actions and adding them to the JBuilder menu or toolbar, through creating wizards, saving settings with the properties system, interacting with the Message Pane, to creating new file node types, and viewers for these or existing types. From creating new key bindings, or intercepting keystrokes in the editor, through Java code parsing and generation, to interfacing with version control systems and application servers. This book has something for everyone that uses JBuilder.

Numerous examples are included in the book. The table of contents and a sample chapter are available here.
