Hi,

I use the Eclipse plattform to develop my javaprogramm.

In the eclipse I have a plugin that requires a running eclipse instance to work.
Which works fine.

What I want to do is call a method from that plugin from inside my programm, while executing it from inside eclipse.

How could this work ?

Cheers
Björn

I know how old this thread is... But I'm working on a similar issue right now.
You can communicate between those two VMs by using RMI or SIMON; SIMON worked fine for me after a while of experimenting... Wink
But to have a hook-in point in the workspace (method for user to call), you would have to be able to expose libraries to the workspace, but I haven't figured out by now... If you find out how, please let me know! Very Happy

Update:

Solved it! I had to define a ClasspathContainer and some QuickfixProcessor, looking at JUnit source code helped a lot. The key hint was someone pointing me to the extension point
org.eclipse.jdt.ui.classpathContainerPage
.
