Comment: Updating link to the tool builder page.


We have designed our architecture to allow tools to be "pluggable" into the LAMS environment. To build a tool, you will need to implement all the required tool interface and function requirements (known as the Tool Contract). If you are interested in building a tool, please let us know. We are currently developing an Eclipse plugin to create LAMS tools. It is at the testing stage, so all feedback is welcome.


So you want to write a tool? Start with the LAMS Overview, then move onto the Tool Contract. When you are ready to play with code read of Alex Little's experience trying to build a LAMS tool and use the RenameTool Tool Builder utility to copy an existing tool as a starting point. Please also have a look through the Best Practices section. This gives practices and patterns that we use through out LAMS.
