I am trying to programmatically copy files from a location on the file
system to an project location. This works fine in the development
environment, but when I deploy this as an RCP the file copy fails. The copy
code using javaIO to copy the files and the following (new LocalFile(new
File(source)).copy(new LocalFile(new File(destination)), EFS.NONE,
monitor);), both of which fail in an RCP application , but work in my
development environment.

What is the proper way to copy files programmatically in eclipse?

Strange the problem was that IResource.getRawLocation() was returning null
in the deployed RCP applications, but was working fine in the development
env. A call to IResource.getLocation() seemed to fix the issue, not sure why
getRawLocation() was failing.
