I have an application called Mads that is under Eclipse 3.7 and want to migrate it to Eclipse 4.2 and XText 2.3.

I ended up creating a new project in a new workspace and then manually copying the xtext model and changing all other bits and pieces. It works when i run it as an Eclipse application.

Then I copied the old product and features definition projects and tried to run the product (the application is org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench).

If I try to run it as a configuration with all installed plugins selected then it runs fine. Then I start de-selecting some plugins, namely so far all b3, epp, egit and buckminster plugins, org.eclipse.e4.tools.*, org.eclipse.wst.* and org.eclipse.emf.codegen.*.

I am still left with a very long list, and the much shorter list from my previous version does not work any more.

I there was documentation / examples / tutorials available that would be most welcome.

You can check out http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.ui.git/tree/features/org.eclipse.e4.rcp/feature.xml

That's a fairly complete list of the bundles needed to launch the UI workbench. If you need more bundles, you can try http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.git/tree/features/org.eclipse.rcp/feature.xml (the RCP feature) and http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.git/tree/features/org.eclipse.platform-feature/feature.xml : the Platform feature contains the Resource based IDE with Text editor support.

Hi Paul & co.

regarding this, is it possible to set up minimal amount of plugins in Eclipse 4, where I have complete Workbench... (common navigator, perspectives, show view menu, show perspective menu, etc...), BUT no JDT support, no PDE support. I was not able to kind of throw java support away from Eclipse 4 based app.

Thanks in advance

Marek
