Need to Develop Plugin Application Using Eclipse RCP

Hi All,

I am very new to eclipse RCP and I am looking forward to develop an application which will have different customizable features included under the preference of the user. In simple words I need to develop an eclipse like application where the plugins can be developed and added dynamically. I am thinking of Spring-OSGI kind of a thing but the eclipse RCP looks like really cool. Can I get this done using Eclipse RCP?

Re: Need to Develop Plugin Application Using Eclipse RCP

Hi!

RCP and therefore Eclipse itself are based on OSGi so you'll have no problem installing new bundles (=plugins) during runtime.

I recommend you start with some of the many RCP tutorials out there  - e.g.:

Project meta data is out of date for rt.equinox

Jeff, Thomas,
Projects are required to keep meta data up to date using the MyFoundation
Portal (http://portal.eclipse.org/).  The following problems were found
with this project's meta-data:

* The date for release "3.6" is in the past, but the release is not marked
as completed. If it is completed, it should be marked as completed; if it
has been postponed, it should be given a new target date.
* There is no next/future release of this project. All Eclipse projects
must have a "next release" planned and scheduled.
* Project home page (projecturl = http://www.eclipse.org/equinox/) does not
have an "About <project>","About This Project" or "Information about
<project>" link. Projects are required to provide that standard link on
their home page (see
http://www.eclipse.org/projects/standard-link-on-home-page.php) .
The 'About' link should point to this URL: 
http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project_summary.php?projectid=rt.equinox

Is there a way to capture BundleExceptions?

Hi!
I'm developing on top of Equinox and couldn't find a way to capture or listen to BundleExceptions raised by the framework. More specifically, I want to capture bundle exceptions thrown when bundles cannot be resolved due to any cause, for example missing constraints. Later on, I'll display a dialog with all bundle exceptions to help me debug these issues.

I've used equinox outside Eclipse and was able to capture all bundle exceptions there since I was the one discovering bundles, installing and starting some of them, but now that I'm lauching a product from within eclipse I can't find a way to listen for those exceptions... I've looked into adaptohooks but none of them seem to help.

Please let me know how to accomplish this, I have looked into this extensively and would greatly appreciate any clues you might have.

Thank you!
Eduardo Born
