I am new to Plugin Development. I was going through some tutorials and i see that there is no main method in the java class. Can anyone explain to me why there is no main method and how it is executed without the main method.

Thanks in Advance

plug-ins run in an OSGi environment like Equinox. They are started with the bundle activator, not with a main method. Of course, the Equinox launcher has a main method.

If the plug-in contributes to the UI of an RPC app or an IDE, the functionality is activated through menus, toolbars etc.
