Hello,
Is it possible to run a java application programmatically from an eclipse plugin?
I am creating a plugin where I need to launch a java application from it.


Thank you.

If you just want to run a Java application from an Eclipse plugin (or
any Java code), the best thing is probably to use the ProcessBuilder.

In an Eclipse plugin, you could rely on the org.eclipse.jdt.launching
plugin which provides some better ways to start a new Java process, with
a better integration in existing Eclipse tools (Console, debugger...)

If you want to create your custom launch configuration to the IDE, that
would appear in the "Run" menu, you should read that:
