Hi everyone,

I am encountering a problem here...our team is trying to port an eclipse Eclipse RCP project into the web and so the first step is to try to use Virgo to use the plugins. I have created all the correct things but when I try to use an extension point (an Eclipse concept) it gives me a null pointer exception on this call:

org.eclipse.core.runtime.Platform.getExtensionRegistry(); // null here

Does anyone have any experience when it comes to solving this problem?

Thanks,

Tom

Do you have org.eclipse.equinox.registry bundle and all its dependencies in Virgo?

Update: I have added all of its dependencies to repository/usr but it seems that the bundles are not in STARTED state unless I manually start them myself. When that happens I don't get the NPE anymore but my app does not seem to register any extension points since the app started first and then I started the org.eclipse..registry bundle.

Is there a way to automatically start that bundle? I saw in a forum that in virgo 2.x that bundle started itself whereas in 3.0.1 (the version I'm using) it doesn't start by itself.

The problem seems to be the same as in this forum topic.
