I am using Eclipse IDE 3.7 for my RCP application.
In the application I am trying to use the WorkbenchWindow class from a file. I am coming accross the below mentioned warning:
Discouraged access: The type WorkbenchWindow is not accessible due to restriction on required project org.eclipse.ui.workbench_188.8.131.52110519
I have imported org.eclipse.ui.internal.WorkbenchWindow.
Please suggest for pointers, if any to resolve this warning.
Thanks in Advance,

Why should you need the menu manager in a "global" context? You get it
provided at the places where you need it, e.g. in your ActionBarAdvisor
implementation. If you really need it elsewhere you could store a
reference in you ActionBarAdvisor implementation and could make this
globally available by whichever means of the language you like. But I
don't recommend this approach. I would recommend to hold in for a moment
and would ask myself, whether I really need this global variable. I
never missed the lack of it, I always use the manager from the local
context that provides it to me, e.g. in a view part you have access to
the view site and via this site you get getActionBars() which again
provides the menu manager to you.
