Thank you for looking at this Vivek.|
When creating an RCP the only Windows part that is created is the launcher, eclipse.exe or my_project.exe. The launcher can be signed.
The other DLLs which an RCP project uses are those provided by Eclipse and any third party plug-ins or jars (for example Java Advanced Imaging has 3 DLL so graphics can be handled with native mechanisms. The Eclipse DLLs are packaged in jar (Java Archive) files.
I doubt that Eclipse built-in security would allow removing the DLLs from the distribution jars, signing them and putting them back into the distribution jars.
Eclipse framework and Java loads DLL when it needs them. When Eclipse or an Eclipse RCP in installed on a Bit9 protected PC only the DLLs used by the install process, or called by running an Eclipse project or the Eclipse RCP during the installation time period, are recognized by Bit9.
DLLs called after the unlock period expires are blocked by Bit 9.
This is an example of the Bit9 / Eclipse problems we are having:
I received a new desktop with Bit9. Support put in the code to unlock the parity agent. I installed JDK 6 rel 32, copied IDE folder from my laptop to desktop and ran some of my projects.
These are the DLLs I have found in Indigo:
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86_3.7.1.v3738a.jar
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.core.net.win32.x86_1.0.100.I20110331-0827.jar
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.core.filesystem.win32.x86_1.1.300.v20110423-0524.jar
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources.win32.x86_3.5.100.v20110423-0524.jar
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.equinox.security.win32.x86_1.0.200.v20100503.jar
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.update.core.win32_3.2.200.v20100512.jar
DLL's packaged in C:\eclipse_ide\eclipse_indigo_RCP\plugins\org.eclipse.wb.os.win32_1.1.0.r37x201109091012.jar
During my install these DLL were unbundled and I presumed recognized by Bit9:
The Bit9 app control error, block, occured when the IDE tried to use this DLL
I thought Bit9 would register more of these DLLs if I had a set of classes which touched each of these DLLs, forcing them to be unbundled for their delivery jar, and ran these classes during the installation while Bit9 was unlocked.
I am asking for other community members experience with Eclipse and Bit9.
There doesn't seem to be alot available now on getting Bit9 and Eclipse to work together. I didn't find anything on bit9.com for "Eclipse" and I didn't find anything on eclipse.org searching for "bit9" in terms of application control.
