Hello,

I created a simple eclipse plug-in using PDE. It is nothing but just plain default extension of perspective
I gave just user defined relevant name to the perspective.

Now, I wanted to run and see if I can access this perspective under eclipse-platform's window tab -> open perspective list in eclipse-platform.

To do this, I exported this plug-in in JAR file and copied into eclipse-platform's dropin directory. But I am not able to see it.

Anyone can help me on this?

Best Regards,
-Harry

1) you can "self-host" using Run>Run Configurations to launch and eclipse application that includes your plugin from your workspace

2) if you are trying to add it to a running eclipse, you need to either export it so it can be loaded by p2 or drop your .jar in the eclipse/dropins folder

And if you use an existing workspace you might also have to reset the
perspective(s) using Window > Reset Perspectives...
