How to start implementing a HighlightingPass

"I am trying to place a gutter annotation on particular lines in Java classes in response to asynchronous testing events.  These classes may already be open in an editor, may be open but not visible, or may not be opened yet at all."

i wanna implement something like

some of my questions are:

1. is there a registration  in the plugin.xml descriptor for a HighlightingPass like for a LineMarkerProvider
2. a LineMarkerProvider is only called once on idea startup, am i right?
3. how do i invoke/call a HighlightingPass

If you want to annotate some elements and/or provide editor gutter navigation you could use Annotator which is IMHO simpler to understand.
