That was me. :)

The rcp newsgroup is very useful, obviously it is mainly about RCP development
but there is a lot of knowledge that applies to both general plugin development
In fact the real difference between building a plugin for eclipse and building
an RCP application is which other plugins and API's are you going to make use of.
The great thing about developing for eclipse using eclipse is that at any time
where you are using an API call into the platform code you can just F3 and jump
straight into the source..which is generally very well commented.
And last but not least the in-built help is actually really good, theres places
where it just seems to miss out what you want, but mostly its a great 1st resource.
oh, one more...its sometimes useful to check the eclipse bugzilla as well
because it contains more than just bug reports :)
that should be enough to get going...
If you are building a logger view then you can look at the log console for ASDT
as that might show you a rough framework..and if you want to include Log4J
support then it could be worth seeing if you can find the source for Chainsaw.
Maybe there are some useful techniques in there that you might be able to borrow :)
