I have CDT plugins.I want to use them in eclipse RCP application.
Want to know whether using these CDT plugins, will I be able to view CDT perpsective in the RCP application.
What shoud I do to for the same??
I tried following thing but it didnt work at all:
1)Created Eclise RCP application with view.
2)Created .exe of the application using product configuration.
3)Copied the plugins into the plugins folder of the product.
MY understanding was that, it should install cdt plugins and show CDT perspective. but it didnt..
I want to know whether my understanding is correct??

To create an RCP app that uses CDT, you would probably need to base your RCP app on org.eclipse.platform feature (which is the IDE workbench).
You can't just drop plugins anywhere, you would have to build a product that has your feature (for your plugins), the CDT features (for their plugins), and the org.eclipse.platform feature (for the IDE workbench).
To install CDT after the fact you would use something like Help>Install New Software or the p2 director , we don't support adding things in plugins/ anymore
