restart a workbench [message #95692] Wed, 02 July 2008 10:22 Go to next message

Hello,

is there a way to restart a RAP workbench like a RCP workbench with
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().restart()?

I just could close the workbench, but reopen failes, re-running the
createUI() method in my Entry Point failes.

Thanks in advance,
Rob.

Rob,

this is not yet supported. See this bug:
201545: workbench restart does not open new workbench window
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=201545

Cheers,
RĂ¼diger

how about a little workaround:

final JavaScriptExecutor executor = RWT.getClient().getService(JavaScriptExecutor.class);
executor.execute("window.location.reload(true);");

:
This workaround only stops current UISession and creates a new one within the same JVM process. It doesn't help if one is trying to have Eclipse workbench restarted in order to have a new VM process allocated upon restart. In our case we need the server (Eclipse with embedded Jetty) to be truly restarted and the lack of Workbench.restart() implementation is blocking us from doing that.
