Hi,

I am trying to contribute an extension from start method of my bundle activator. The following thread helped me for that. It mandates that we set a startup parameter allowing the registry to accept null user token, this seems to be a sort of the security thing. i want to do it without giving the startup parameter, for which i need the security token accessible in the plugin.

http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform.rcp/m sg36505.html

in the class ExtensionRegistry there is a method getTemporaryUserToken() to access the token, but it is clearly mentioned not to use the method and should contact the equinox team if somebody needs to use them.

I feel that bundle should be able to contribute an extension freely without any of the security hurdle. please mention if am missing something.

Thanks
Jagadish Suri

You found information on what is supported today.

You may want this, but other apps and products built on eclipse
especially require that contributed bundles cannot arbitrarily fiddle
with the extension registry.

Since you control your app, you can do it no problem with the null user
token.

In my app, you'll not be fiddling with my extension registry thank you
very much! :-)
