I attempted to use the headless buckminster "launch" command to run a *.launch file that specifies an external tool. I got the following error message:

Launch configuration type id "org.eclipse.ui.externaltools.ProgramLaunchConfigurationType" does not exist.
Possible causes:
Missing specification of a launch type (missing plug-in)
Incorrect launch configuration XML


Is headless buckminster able to run this type of launch file?

Thanks
Matthew

Did you try depending on the org.eclipse.ui.externaltools plugin? Maybe this already helps, even though you're headless.

I presume that org.eclipse.ui.externaltools needs to be part of the Eclipse I am running - i.e. headless buackminster. Putting it in the workspace probably won't help. I'll give it a try, though.

Hi Matthew,

For reasons unknown to me, the externaltools where written without a clean separation between headless and UI
components. This means that it's less straight forward to run it headlessly. First, you must install all needed UI
components which will make the headless tool quite large.

So, the answer is yes, Buckminster is able to launch it, but a lot of stuff must be installed first.
