The first step would be to download and build the plugins for Subclipse.
You can get them from the Subclipse site. The next step would be to start
playing around. You will probably want to add new menu items and options to
the UI so you should look at SWT (Eclipse's windowing framework). You can
find the JavaDoc for all of the Eclipse APIs here:
As well as a an overview with sample code here:
I have also found Eclipse's snippets page to be very helpful when trying to
build slightly more complex applications. You can find that one here:
That should really get you started. You probably won't need to write any
new plugins if you just plan to change the existing Subclipse plugins. If
you want to try building a new plugin the Eclipse wizards are a good place
to start. You can install Eclipse and create a new example plugin project.
Good luck, and please let us know about your progress.

Subject: [Subclipse-users] Hacking on Subclipse --- where to start?
We've recently started using Review Board
(http://reviewboard.googlecode.com) for code reviews, and I'd like to
explore adding support to Subclipse for submitting review requests directly
from within Eclipse instead of having to drop to the command-line and using
the post-review script.
I have not written an Eclipse plug-in before, so I'm not sure where to
start, and I'm looking for guidance: not only on good overviews for how this
is done, but also information on getting setup to do Subclipse hacking. Any
and all pointers are appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
