Hello everyone,

I am trying to deploy a plugin that I wrote in eclipse RCP as a standalone application in linux. I have a class that extends the IApplication class and I have extended the:
org.eclipse.core.runtime.applications point to and tied it to my Application class.

I also have a product file with all arguments defined. When I go to export my application everything appears to go smoothly and all the files are generated into the specified directory.

My problem is that I have no idea of how to actually run it. In Windows a .exe file is generated but here there is nothing except for jars and xml files. I don't understand how I am suppose to run my app with these.

The dir structure looks like this:
|-RulesEditor
|---p2
|-----org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core
|-------cache
|-----org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine
|-------profileRegistry
|---------profile.profile
|---plugins
|-----org.eclipse.jdt.debug_3.5.0.v20090526
|-------META-INF
|-----org.junit_3.8.2.v20090203-1005
|-------META-INF
|-------about_files
|-repository
|---plugins

Anyone have an idea of how I can actually launch my application? Did I mess up in my export process?

Thanks for your help
Eugene

Are you developing and deploying on linux? Or are you trying to deploy
from windows?

Hey thanks for the quick reply. I am developing for Linux(Red Hat) and I've managed to figure out why the executable was not created. Apparently I had some errors in some unused code which caused it to fail.

Thanks for your help!
