All Implemented Interfaces:

public class ToolsAction
extends SystemAction
implements ContextAwareAction, Presenter.Menu, Presenter.Popup

A "meta-action" that displays (in a submenu) a list of enabled actions provided by modules. Such registered actions are called "service actions": they are provided externally but seem to provide additional services on existing components. Often they will be NodeActions or CookieActions so that they will be enabled based on the node selection, i.e. the node containing this popup. It is desirable for most nodes to include this action somewhere in their popup menu.

Note: you do not need to touch this class to add a service action! Just add the action to a module manifest in an Action section.

The list of registered service actions is provided to this action from the implementation by means of ActionManager.
