since i am new here, to avoid misunderstandings, in the point -A- i wrote a very small thesaurus, to be sure that we will talk about the same topic
- A -
Just correct if wrong or complete them, this is what i understood.
RCP = an extendible application. If i want to create a basic program, and extend it later, this is the best choice (or maibe the only one). After built it, i can forget eclipse, it will be completely independent application
Plug-in = i create a plug-in with eclipse, i export it, put its .jar file in the "plugins" directory of my RCP application, and when i reboot my application, some new icon, menu or similar will be present, adding new functionality to my program.

This is the "real" question
I created 1. a RCP using Eclipse cheat sheets. I also created 2. a hello world plug-in, again using cheat sheets. I created the executable version of 1. and exported 2. (the plug-in). I took the *.jar file created from 2. and putted in the "plugins" directory of the RCP application (1.). I expected that, when i open the RCP application, i would see the plug-in icon, but this doesn't happen. I would like to connect many plug-ins to my RCP application, to make it an extensible application.
Can anybody help me, explaining how to do that?
I am able to create plug-in for eclipse, but not plugin for my RCP application.
if you don't understand anything, just ask and i'll try to explain better.
