I would like to know if there is any way to find all subtypes of particular class from my plug-in. I have an IJavaElement which represents this class and ideally I would like to find all its subtypes represented also as IJavaElements, though even their qualified names could be sufficient..

If anyone knows solution to my problem I'd be very grateful for helping me.

Thanks in advance and best regards.

You will need your (runtime workspace) project to be a Java Project and use JDT API to list subtypes.
The code to use is parentType.newTypeHierarchy(project,null).getAllSubtypes(par entType).

I cross-posted this answer to JDT newsgroup/forum, which is more accurate for your question.
