Hi,

I have a problem with the xulrunner plugin for eclipse. In my RCP I want to use the swtbrowser with gecko, so I added the xulrunner plugin to my project. If I starts the RCP-application in eclipse everything is fine and the xulrunner is found, but if I export it as a eclipse product I've got in the .log-file under "[RCPApplication]/workspace/.metadata" the error: "No plugin contributing a private Xulrunner. Using the default platform registered Xulrunner." But there is a folder called "org.mozilla.xulrunner.win32.win32.x86" under the plugins-folder. And this folder also contains the whole xulrunner-folder. So the xulrunner is there but cannot be detected.

Any ideas why it does not work as a standalone product, but in eclipse?

Hi,

I don't know if the org.mozilla.xpcom plug-in actually does anything to help
the browser find a xulrunner plug-in. It's possible that your
org.mozilla.xulrunner.win32.win32.x86 plug-in is not being used in the case
of running within eclipse either, but is not logging the error message. To
see which xulrunner install is being used in the within-eclipse and exported
product cases add "Device.DEBUG=true;" to your app anywhere before the first
Browser with style SWT.MOZILLA is created, and the path wil be printed to
stdout.

SWT's FAQ was lacking on the topic of shipping a XULRunner, so I've updated
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#specifyxulrunner . This should help you
out, if not then please follow up here.

Hey,

within eclipse the right xulrunner is used, but as an exported product the xulrunner-plugin is still not found, even with your example of a XULRunnerInitializer. For now i solved the problem by setting the xulrunner_path system property by myself, not the best version, but it works...
