I would like to be able to not share the generated classes ResourceManager & SWTResourceManager between my different plugins: according to me each plug-ins should indeed manage its own resources. Unfortunately, it is not easy to accomplish as WindowBuilder does not want to generate them if these classes can be found from the classpath (even if the package is not visible by client plugins, from an OSGI point of view).
My situation is as follow :
* my.component.library.jar uses ResourceManager to manage its resources.
* my.code.client1.jar uses my.component.library.jar but also creates its own components and want to manage its own resources (if my.code.client1.jar is stopped, release its resources)
The only way to do it, is copying/pasting ResourceManager & SWTResourceManager from my.component.library.jar. Moreover, being able to specify the package (in preferences) for these classes would be nice too.

The current WB behavior (e.g., not generating those classes if they already exist on the classpath) is quite intentional and reflects the needs of most developers. As such, the current committer team is not planning to make any changes in this area.
That said, if you want to submit a patch (supported by a new user preference or preferences) that implements the behavior you want, we would be happy to review it.
