Hi,

I am developing UI plugin and facing problem with getting bitmaps from the released plugin. This plugin is built as feature and distributed via update site.
If I execute the same code in the development EclipseIDE there is no problem and the bitmaps are loaded and visible in the plugin.

I am using getImageDescriptor to load bitmaps from plugin. Bitmaps are stored in the "icons" directory. Directory is included in binary build and bitmaps (icons directory) is included in jar file.

This code is working fine in the development EclipseIDE but not working in feature.

Activator.getImageDescriptor("icons/platform.bmp");


If I use GIF there is no problem. I am using this code
Activator.getImageDescriptor("icons/sample.gif");


Is there any reason why I can use bitmaps in development EclipseIDE but not in the feature?

Thanks,
Jan

Hi,

after looking into the problem I found that the problem is caused by case sensitivity of the file path in the feature.

That means file path is case insensitive In development Eclipse IDE, but case sensitive in the feature.

I face this behaviour in the Eclipse IDE v. 3.6.1.

More correctly, the file path will be case insensitive while in the
workspace on windows, but case sensitive in PDE, feature jars, plugin
jars, and in workspaces on other OSes.
