RCP - Debugging which plugin is missing from target platform [message #903659] Fri, 24 August 2012 18:19 Go to next message

I am building an RCP using a target platform.

The issue I have is that when I run the app using the target platform it does not work.... no error message, no error in the console... nothing it just does not work properly.

When I run the app selecting all plugins in my eclipse platform it works fine... so I conclude the target platform is missing one or more vital plugins..... but how do I work out which ones it is.

I believe I have setup all my dependencies ok in my plugins (but maybe I haven't?)....

It's something that has been bothering me for a while that I don't really have a efficient way of working this out. I had a similar issue last time and managed to get there more by luck than skill.

Any pointers or shoves in the right direction appreciated.... thanks!

have you try "Validate Plug-ins" in the Plug-ins tab of your run configuration?

to be clear I am not looking for a specific answer .... I am looking for community tips on how people go about debugging this issue, if there are any?

I remember that I had problems a couple of weeks ago when I configured a special target platform for my application. A certain plugin was available twice in the plattform definition with the result that none was properly loaded. It took me quite a while to figure it out. In cases like this I would start the application with the -console argument and check the bundle states by entering "ss". Maybe some vital plugins are not activated. If so try to activate them via the console and see what happens.

Good luck
Thorsten
