Dear assembled RCP magi,

I have written a plugin that contains an extension of org.eclipse.search.searchPages and org.eclipse.search.searchResultViewPages. They work together to achieve a simple but useful database search.

The search functionality works perfectly when running from within the a 'child' eclipse under the plugin-development-eclipse instance (corrections to terminology most welcome). However, when packaged as a deployable plugin, and dropped into the ./plugins directory of my regular Eclipse instance, the new searchPage fails to appear as an option when invoked using Search menu => Search.

Oddly, there is nearly nothing in the error log. There is a single warning "testing warnings generated during RSE initialization" with no stack-trace.

I would be most grateful for clues and pointers towards resolving this predicament.

Martin.

Make sure to start with -debug

Many thanks Dani, that did the trick.

It reminded me to run eclipse -clean, rather than eclipse /clean, as I had been Smile

Is there a reference page that documents the switches that can be passed to eclipse.exe and the values that can be put in the .options file?

My thanks to you again,

Martin
