Plug-ins for WDSC:

See also Plugin_development

A plug-in is an add-on piece of software that extends the base functionality of Eclipse. Most Eclipse plug-ins can be added and updated by Help->Software Updates->Find and Install. A plug-in can provide new perspectives, new views or new menu items.

Updating WDSC is never done through Help->Software Updates! Always use the IBM Installation Manager to update WDSC.
