Hi all. |
I tried to create, as user from my Xtext plug-in, a new external tool configuration to simply execute a .bat wich launches an external compiler of the language for which I'm implementing an IDE using Xtext. I did so by selecting External Tools -> External Tools Configurations... -> New Program, and then by filling the information about location of the .bat, working directory and arguments.
This was very simple.
Now, I'm trying to define directly in my plug-in this external tool which executes my .bat, by using the Eclipse launching API, but I found very difficult to understand how I could obtain this... First of all, which is the correct extension point where I can hook to?
Have you any hint, or is there some simple example about implementing an external tool that simply launches a .bat, using Eclipse launching API?
Thanks in advance,
