The menu API is the new mechanism in 3.3 to create menu and toolbar items. This talk will explain how to use the new API to create menus with more flexibility than the current extension points (like org.eclipse.ui.actionSets). It will also provide an example of how you could migrate some of the current extension points to the new architecture and how commands supports the new menu API.

Paul Webster received a B.A.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 1994. After many years working on telephony software and network configuration software in Java and C++, Paul joined the IBM Eclipse Platform UI team in May 2005 and is currently working for IBM Rational Software. Paul is responsible for part lifecycle, command and handlers, and keybindings.
