Calling a command in an headless RCP application [message #643916] Wed, 08 December 2010 16:58 Go to next message

Hi,

I have an RCP application that is supposed to use an Eclipse plug-in to modify the code of a project in the workspace. The plug-in defines commands and handlers.

The RCP application should be headless.

I have successfully been able to call the plug-in by using the handlers that it defines.

The problem is that is need to create a Workbench to be able to get the IHandlerService and execute the command. I am thus relying on org.eclipse.ui.*. I do not think that it's good but I do not find pointers to how I could call a command by relying only on org.eclipse.core.*.

Would you have any pointers on how I could achieve that?

Thanks.

In 3.x the services were created as an artifact of the UI layer. See the
thread:
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform/msg68 678.html

http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform/msg68 707.html has
a roll-your-own headless example.
