DevFaqActionAddEditorPopup

How do I add an action to a the popup menu of the Java editor?

The simplest way is to run New Action Wizard (File > New... > Module Development > Action) which creates an action for you and registers it in your layer.xml.

  1. On the first tab, choose Conditionally Enabled action and select EditorCookie as the cookie class.
  2. On the second tab, check Editor Context Menu Item and choose MIME type (text/x-java in this case) and position.

OR use

@ActionReference(path="Editors/text/x-java/Popup")
for an action with the EditorCookie as context object
