Hi,

I am using Class.forName() in my Plug-In Project and it works just fine, so either your class is actually not available, or there is a miss spell or something similiar.

It sounds like you'd want to check for classes in the Workscpaces (??) since there is a wizard that let's someone do that. You could look into the code of JDT and see how they do it with their creation-wizards. I think the Java model already contains all the classes that are available and you can easily query that model to check if you class exists.

Kind regards,
