I have an RCP app that launches and runs well from the Eclipse IDE. I am having trouble making it into a product, probably because I do not know the proper steps. The only instructions I have are from an old tutorial at:
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-RCP-1/tutorial1.html

I follow the tutorial: New-> Other-> Plug-in Development-> Product Configuration
(Not sure this is correct???)

I get to the "synchronize" and "Launch an Eclipse application", but the test launch is unsuccessful.

If there is a better tutorial on making a product from RCP, please tell me where it is.

Here is a stack trace of the test launch:

Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor.EclipseStarter

Thanks,

I found this article:

http://www.vogella.de/articles/RichClientPlatform/article.ht ml#product

I blindly followed the steps and it worked.

I can not explain why, but several times previously when I went to the Dependencies tab of the New Product Configuration, I would click on the "Add" button and nothing happened. The "Select a plugin" window would come up empty, and the buttons were disabled.

Is it possible that I did not wait long enough??

As far as I am concerned, this thread can end.

Thanks,

Blindly following my tutorials is always a good advice. ;-) (Just
kidding...)

Cheers, Lars
