A couple plugin development questions

I’m very new to java and trying to develop a plugin for spark. I’ve run in to a few roadblocks:

  1. How do you add a button to an IM chat window?

  2. How do you add a new item to the right click menu?

Also, when using the Sparkplug kit, in the plugin.xml – what is the proper value of <class></class> supposed to be?

Hi Jon,

All your questions are addressed in the Sparkplug Development Guide.



I have read this and got to the point I’m at now. I’ve figured out the plugin.xml, but still unable to find out how to add a menu item to the menu that pops up when you right click on a contact’s name.

Hi Jon,

What you’re looking for is under the How do I add a context menu listener to the contact list? section.

Hope that helps,


thank you!
