I'm developing an eclipse product and i need to associate a file extension to my editor.
I followed several examples ( and but it seems that the editor ever receives the SWT OpenDocument event.

As described in the fileAssociation example i created an eventListener class to process SWT.OpenDocument events and i added this in my Application class to the display before that the PlatformUI.createAndRunWorkbench() method gets called

public Object start(IApplicationContext context) throws Exception {
Object args = context.getArguments().get(IApplicationContext.APPLICATION_ARGS);	
OpenDocumentEventProcessor eProc = new OpenDocumentEventProcessor();
Display display = PlatformUI.createDisplay();
display.addListener(SWT.OpenDocument, eProc);
		return IApplication.EXIT_OK;
int returnCode = PlatformUI.createAndRunWorkbench(display, new XVRWorkbenchAdvisor(args, eProc));

In the product file i added the following program arguments:
XVR Studio Developer

If I use the same code in a new empty RCP project it works like a charm..

I can't figured out which could be the problem..

can you help me?

Thanks a lot!!
