Hi All,

I've to implement an eclipse action that generate the RCP application programatically and launch it. I can use JDT to create java source folder, packages, classes but my issue is how to create RCP specific files (like Plugin.xml, .product files etc.) programmatically. Please help.

Thanks & Regards,
Ahmad Saif

I'd try in the .pde newsgroup. I don't believe there is API for
programmically creating all of the PDE type files, although there might
be some.

The alternative is create some templates and simply generate their contents.

Hi Ahmad,

Yes, you can use JET or XPand to make templates and create code. EMF uses JET
but XPand seems the be the new hot thing.

Best regards,

Wim
