How to extend Drag and Drop

Please get detailed snippets with the com.change_vision.astah.extension.plugin.drag_and_drop_example project. To add DropTargetListener during the initialization of a plugin, Activator#start(BundleContext context) should be implemented.

package com.example;

import org.osgi.framework.BundleActivator;
import org.osgi.framework.BundleContext;

import com.example.internal.ClassDiagramDropExtension;
import com.example.internal.util.AstahAPIUtils;
import com.change_vision.jude.api.inf.view.IDiagramViewManager;

public class Activator implements BundleActivator {

  private AstahAPIUtils utils = new AstahAPIUtils();

  public void start(BundleContext context) {
    ClassDiagramDropExtension diagramDropTargetListener = new ClassDiagramDropExtension();
    IDiagramViewManager diagramViewManager = utils.getDiagramViewManager();
    diagramViewManager.addDropTargetListener(diagramDropTargetListener);

  }

  public void stop(BundleContext context) {
  }

}
