MyFirstPlugin - button Project menu in Ready Api

hello,

I'm trying to create my first plugin for ReadyApi. I would like to add a button in the Project menu, only when a project is open. 

I've got the template Smartbear provided (https://github.com/SmartBear/ready-api-plugins) working and i see all kind of extra teststep/screens/buttons, but none in the project menu.

In the template is an action which suggest to add a button:

package com.smartbear.ready.plugin.template.actions;

import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.WsdlProject;
import com.eviware.soapui.plugins.ActionConfiguration;
import com.eviware.soapui.support.UISupport;
import com.eviware.soapui.support.action.support.AbstractSoapUIAction;
import com.google.inject.Inject;

@ActionConfiguration(actionGroup = "EnabledWsdlProjectActions", targetType = WsdlProject.class)
public class SampleJavaAction extends AbstractSoapUIAction<WsdlProject> {

    @Inject
    public SampleJavaAction() {
        super("Sample Java Action", "A sample action at the project level");
    }

    @Override
    public void perform(WsdlProject project, Object o) {
        UISupport.showInfoMessage("Hello from project [" + project.getName() + "]!");
    }
}

But no luck. The documentation says that actionGroup won't work in ReadyApi, see: https://support.smartbear.com/readyapi/docs/configure/plugins/annotations/actions/action.html
Is there an alternative to add a button in the Project menu?

thank you

    Interesting to see plugin development.

    Any errors?

    Did you try debug for IDE? or add debug statements to see if invoked or not?

    Curious to see if you have any wire frame / mock screen that you are trying to build?

      sorry for the late reaction. I found another way to create an plugin. Instead of using java i used groovy.

      i start using the template: Smartbears template

      and added my own UpdateFunctionLibrary.groovy to it:

      package com.smartbear.ready.plugin.template.actions;
      
      import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.WsdlProject;
      import com.eviware.soapui.impl.wsdl.WsdlProjectPro;
      import com.eviware.soapui.plugins.ActionConfiguration;
      import com.eviware.soapui.support.UISupport;
      import com.eviware.soapui.support.action.support.AbstractSoapUIAction;
      import com.smartbear.ready.functional.actions.FunctionalActionGroups;
      import com.eviware.soapui.SoapUI
      import com.eviware.soapui.SoapUIProSettings
      
      @ActionConfiguration(actionGroup = FunctionalActionGroups.FUNCTIONAL_MODULE_TOOLBAR_ACTIONS, targetType = WsdlProjectPro.class, isToolbarAction = true, iconPath = "com/smartbear/ready/plugin/template/icons/jira.svg",description = "Update FunctionLibrary")
      public class updateFunctionLibrary extends AbstractSoapUIAction<WsdlProjectPro> {
      
          // @Inject
          public updateFunctionLibrary() {
              super( "toolbar", "Update FunctionLibrary", "");
          }
      
          @Override
          public void perform(WsdlProjectPro project, Object o) {
      
              if (SoapUI.settings.getString(SoapUIProSettings.SCRIPT_LIBRARY, "") == "") {
                  return
              }
      
              if (!project.open) {
                  UISupport.showErrorMessage("Project " + project.getName() + " is closed.");
              } else {
                  if (project.name.toLowerCase() == "fl") {
                      UISupport.showErrorMessage("not possible.");
                  }  else { 
                      Boolean functionLibraryExists = false
      
                      project.testSuiteList.each{
                          if (it.name.toLowerCase() == "functionlibrary") {
                              functionLibraryExists = true
                          }
                      }
      
                      if (functionLibraryExists) {
                          project.runAfterLoadScript()
                          UISupport.showInfoMessage("FunctionLibraryupdated");
                      } 
                      else {
                          UISupport.showErrorMessage("Error updateing FunctionLibrary");
                      }
                  }
              }
          }
      }

      And later build it with maven (mvn install)

       

      Maybe not the best way to code, but it works for me

       

      After I installed the plugin as .jar file and restart ReadyApi I get a button. when i click it, it will start the project load script

       

       

      ps. i borrow the icon of the Jira plugin
