Headless Workspace [message #897090] Sat, 21 July 2012 15:44 Go to next message

I'm attempting to migrate my code for starting up a headless eclipse workspace from 3.x to Juno. With e4 it seems that the proper route would be to create a headless presentation engine to replace the default PartRenderingEngine, but in my attempts to use the HeadlessContextPresentationEngine, I've run into a problem where the event broker is never injected resulting in the headless engine failing with an NPE during its postConstruct.

Here is how I'm overriding the default PartRenderingEngine
  <extension point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.products" id="org.eclipse.sdk.ide">
    <product application="org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.swt.E4Application">
      <property name="presentationURI" value="bundleclass://org.sample/org.eclipse.e4.ui.tests.application.HeadlessContextPresentationEngine" />
    </product>
  </extension>


I then start eclipse normally letting it run the default workbench application which fails to start with this NPE due to the eventBroker being null:

Looking at the eclipse source I can't figure out why the default PartRenderingEngine would have its eventBroker injected, but the HeadlessContextPresentationEngine wouldn't.

Just curious, but if it's headless, why don't you just supply your own IApplication? Why bother running the workbench?

Re: the event rocker not being injected. It I sounds like you're missing a key bundle. Are you including all the bundles specified by org.eclipse.e4.rcp feature?

Brian.

I need to run the workbench because I'm exposing eclipse features via console commands (eclim.org). For eclipse 3.x I had a dedicated IApplication which included some gross hacks so I could call PlatformUI.createAndRunWorkbench(...) and prevent it from rending anything, but those hacks no longer work.

Thanks for the hint! Turns out I was just missing javax.inject in my dependencies. Now on to the next set of NPEs...
