I would like to enable the "General" option "Always run in background" for jobs as the default for a fresh installed RCP application so that the user don't have to select this option in the preferences. How can i enable this for my application?

Any help is appreciated!

I think putting

org.eclipse.ui/RUN_IN_BACKGROUND=true

in the plugin_customization.ini should work

Thanks for the answer. I've enabled the plugin_customization.ini in my product but this file seems to be ignored. Any idea what could be wrong in my product configuration?

Have you:

a) added it to your build.properties
b) added a property

<property
name="preferenceCustomization"
value="plugin_customization.ini"/>

to your org.eclipse.core.runtime.products extension point?

Just to be sure: Is your plugin_customization.ini working but only the
RUN_IN_BACKGROUND is not recognized or is the plugin_customization.ini
not working at all?

Btw.: It seem that the required key should be:

org.eclipse.ui.workbench/RUN_IN_BACKGROUND

not

org.eclipse.ui/RUN_IN_BACKGROUND

as indicated by Greg.

Hello Daniel,

thanks for the help. It seems that the plugin_customization.ini is not working at all.

A typical reason for this problem could be that your launch
configuration does not clear the workspace, therefore it will still use
the previous settings. Ensure that on tab "Main" you have selected

Clear

and marked "workspace" as well. In addition select tab "Configuration"
and ensure that

Clear the configuration area before launching

is selected as well.

Hello Daniel,

thank you very much for your help.

After a few new tries i found the solution.

My mistake was that i've forgotten to set the value from your new suggestion.

org.eclipse.ui.workbench/RUN_IN_BACKGROUND (wrong!)
instead:
org.eclipse.ui.workbench/RUN_IN_BACKGROUND=true (correct!)
(arrrggg...... Mad )

Finally it works!

It is an old topic, but it may be worth adding this note for those wanting to avoid the .ini file.
Add the following line to ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor.preWindowOpen
WorkbenchPlugin.getDefault().getPreferenceStore().setValue("RUN_IN_BACKGROUND", true);
