Hello everyone,

i'm currently writing my bachelors thesis and i want to create an e4 Application.
For that i'm getting editors generated with xtend/xtext.
Since i have no control over this code i'm kind of lost.
When i try to instanciate an editor i get a "Workbench has not been created yet." error

This is how i try to open it:
	public void createControls(Composite parent) {
		IPath filepath = new Path("/home/hmu/test.regexp");
		IFile file =     ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot().getFile(filepath);
		IWorkbenchPage page = PlatformUI.getWorkbench()
		IEditorDescriptor editorDescriptor = IDE.getDefaultEditor(file);

		if (editorDescriptor == null || editorDescriptor.isOpenExternal()) {
			// if no editor to open the diagram is present ignore it
		try {
			IDE.openEditor(page, file, editorDescriptor.getId(), true);
		} catch (PartInitException e) {
			// opening the diagram failed but as it is optional it can be safely
			// ignored

I have included the plugins for the "compatibility layer". And i could not find how to do this properly. Anyone have any pointers for me?

Thanks in advance, Helge
edit: if any info is missing please tell and i'll try my best to provide it.
