  • Extension resource loading

    I've embedded some static files inside the extension, in the folder named `assets`. Trying to access them fails, using following code: InputStream in = DataUtils.class.getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream("/assets/" + filename); Maybe it fails because "/" refers to root of `burp.jar`, not my `ext.jar`. How can I access the assets?

  • Highlighting a tab in JTabbedPane of an extension

    Hi, I am working on an extension that has its own JTabbedPane. I am trying to highlight a tab in my extension's JTabbedPane but for some reason the call to setBackgroundAt() simply does nothing. Oddly enough I am able to walk up the chain of components to Burp's JTabbedPane and highlight the main tab of my extension just fine using the same method. Within Burp Suite this situation...

  • IMessageEditor/IMessageEditorController context menu

    I noticed that while using IMessageEditor/IMessageEditorController calls to create a view for request and responses that when you bring up the context menu, it will not allow you to use Send to Repeater/Intruder/Sequencer. An exception shows up on the error window for the plugin in the Extender tab when those options are clicked. However, things like Copy URL and Send to Comparer work. Any ideas?
