I am trying to create an extention using a Plug-in development project.

Have set dependencies on

In the Extensions tab, specifed extention:

On right-clicking the extension and selecting New option, I only see "Generic".  I was expecting to see defaultValueProvier, ValueProvider etc.

I would appreciate if someone could point out what I may be missing.

definition and then click Next.

f) In the Add Content wizard, select Installation and then click Next.
g) On the second page of the wizard, enter D:\Program Files\IBM\rtc-sdk as the Location and then click Finish.
h) After the operation completes, click Finish in the New Target Definition wizard.
i) Back on the Preferences dialog, select the new Target Definition (RTC-SDK) and then click OK.
j) switch to Plug-in development perspective.

Please have a look at
I apparently did not have your problem. I think I developed for RTC 4.0.3.

To set up your development I would recommend to follow and run the Extensions Workshop:

This makes sure you have a working SDK setup, including licenses and UTF-8 settings.

I tried the same steps with SDK 4.0.5 and was able to see the expected options.

Which leads me to beileve that SDK 4.0.2 was the issue.
