Dialogs and wizards

We've seen how to extend the workbench UI by adding views, editors, and actions to the workbench. We've contributed a preference page for controlling the behavior of our plug-in. Now we can tie it all together by launching our own dialogs in response to these actions.

The JFace UI framework provides several standard dialogs and a framework for building your own dialogs and wizards. We'll look at the different kinds of dialogs and wizards and how to build them.

We'll also cover some simple workbench extensions for contributing wizards.
