I have an eclipse application that creates some file and then calls upon a second external application developed in VC++ with that file as input. Is there any way by which i can integrate the VC++ application into my eclipse application without much coding (I do not want to migrate the VC++ application to Eclipse Application) may be adding a view or editor in my eclipse application.

Hi,

If you're asking about getting your external app to show within an SWT
control then the only way is if your app is written as an OLE control.
There are examples of SWT embedding OLE controls from MS (
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/snippets/#ole ). However if your app is not
already written to be an OLE control then this won't help you.

The only other suggestion you can try is a less-integrated approach,
where you implement a normal view/editor in Eclipse, which communicates
with your external app by some means like a socket. I don't know if
this makes sense in your case since you didn't specify what your
external app is doing.

HTH,
Grant
