Hi!

We are developing Eclipse RCP application that supports different licensing schemes. For each scheme it must have special splash screen.

Is it possible to customize what splash screen should be drawn from java code?

Thanks in advance,
Sergey

It think it is possible. Have a look at the extension point

org.eclipse.ui.splashHandlers

(I haven't used it, though).

Unfortunately, this wont help.

I think splashHandlers extension point allows only to decorate existing splash. This because if one manage to debug splash handler, one could notice, that splash will appear before splashHandlers class started its execution.

Thanks

Well, there is also the -showsplash program argument parameter, which
allows to provide a specific splash screen, though. I don't know,
whether this helps, because this value is evaluated in the early phase
of the program start. Maybe your installation can modify the value of
this parameter provided in your .ini file?

I also found this report:

(Again: Untested)
