How do you call "Everything compiles, but nothing works"? "Loose coupling"!
Galileo with RCP Version: 3.5.2.R35x_v20100119-9SA0FxwFnoCU5XxWItFdXXb27BA6
Build id: M20100211-1343
Had two plugins connected via extension point mechanism, which worked fine. Then I've installed the "RCP Book Tools", which required some Mylin packages. SW install worked fine without problems. Unfortunately I did not backup eclipse prior to that update.
Since that update:
IExtensionRegistry registry = Platform.getExtensionRegistry();
IConfigurationElement elements = registry.getConfigurationElementsFor(pluginid, extensionPointId);
delivers an empty array and hence no access to the extension.
More strange: on the "Extension Points" Tab, clicking on "Find refererences" in fact finds the other plugin.
And v.v.: Clicking on "Find declaring extension point" in the other plugin finds the declarator.
My two plugins are different projects to "RCP-BookTool"-project, having nothing to do with it. As I said, worked before. Is my Eclipse now damaged due to that RCP-Book/Mylin install?
Where should I place a breakpoint within the startup-sequence of the RCP-stuff to see the "Now I'm going to look for extensions"-procedure behind the curtain?
