Hi all,

What is difference between a eclipse plugin and eclipse rcp plugin?

This creates me confusion that when you launch any eclipse plugin as eclipse application , it is nothing but you are running a rcp application.

Please help me in correcting both the context.

Thanks

An eclipse plugin is an eclipse plugin. An RCP plugin is an eclipse
plugin with an application or product defined in its plugin.xml

Run as an Eclipse Application will run an RCP app ... and allows you to
define which plugins are used.

The Eclipse IDE itself is a bunch of plugins and an RCP app (the
workbench ide application)
