I am having an issue with decorators that work fine when launching our RCP application from the Eclipse IDE. When I export and run our RCP application outside of the Eclipse IDE, having issues getting decorators to work in a TreeViewer.

I would like to attach a debug session to a running RCP that was launched outside of the IDE. There are degug configurations for attaching to a Java application, but there are none for attaching to a running Eclipse Platform.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks.

Found the solution.

Launch the RCP using:
eclipse.exe -console -vmargs -Xdebug -agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=8000

From the IDE, just use Remote Java Application and use a project with the right dependencies to bundles that will be debugged.
