plugin project that references a java project, running junit plugin class def not found problems [message #39150] Thu, 03 November 2005 13:37 Go to next message

I have a plugin project that references a java project.
I want to test the plugin via a junit 'plugin' test.
the problem is that when I go to run my junit plugin test, my java
project code isn't found. Class def not found errors...uggg.

So..... any idea how to solve this problem?


note I want to debug and I want to change code often so exporting my jar
to the plugin project isn't a good solution.

Thanks for any ideas or help here.

Hi Mike,

Here are some hints (project A is the plugin project, project B is the Java
project):

- if you refer a project B from project A you will be able to compile
the code, but the plugin classloader won't find the classes from project B
at runtime, you should avoid the direct modification of the classpath on a
plugin project, always use PDE Tools -> Update Classpath action to update it
after you change the plugin.xml or MANIFEST.MF file.

- I would suggest converting the project B to a plugin project and add
it to the required plugins list of project A, make sure you export all the
Java packages in project B that you'll need in project A.

Regards,
Marius
