We have an Eclipse RCP application developed with Eclipse 3.6.2 that supports different licensing schemes. For each scheme it must have a different splash screen.

Is it possible to specify from the code which splash screen should be loaded?

I looked at the org.eclipse.ui.splashHandlers extension point. However, it allows only to decorate existing splash so the default splash.bmp will appear before splashHandlers class started its execution.

Thanks in advance!

IMHO it will not be possible. Splash is drawn by native-code launcher at
the very beginning and tightly to product definition.

There is only a mechanism to have different splashscreents for various
languages.

But why not have break down your app to a few of different products
based on your licencing schemes? If products will be feature-based you
can easily share single plugin collection making your app throughout all
products.

It's definitely not possible. I think the suggestion with different products would be a good solution.
