I am extremely new to plugin development and for some reason i need to make of this debugger plugin . http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-Debugger/how-to.html

The plugin here is available to download in the form of an zip file which when extracted contains 2 jar files .

Now i try to load them into eclipse . I go to New->Plug-in Development->Plugin from existing Jar archives .

This however loads the project but it does not work .

I tried writing a simple plugin myself and saw that it has Activator.java and SampleAction.java inside the src folder . My loaded application does not have this .

Is it possible to still run this plugin . What modifications do i need to do to make this plugin work ? Surely there must be a way to run this plugin ..

Any help will be appreciated .

Ok so after alot of investigations I was able to fix this problem . The initial plugin code was developed in a very old version of eclipse and hence the method of launching it greatly differs from the way plugins are launched today . I fix it by making changes in my plugin.xml file .
