I just upgraded my RCP application from Indigo to Kepler. I has an issue with FileDialog: when the open method is called, the FileDialog does not appear and my application hangs.

I use it in the simplest way possible:

FileDialog fileDialog = new FileDialog(getShell());
String filePath =;

Any idea what the problem could be ?

This is in fact linked to another problem that I have (the FileDialog works fine in another situation).

After the upgrade to Kepler, I kept getting the following exception:

org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Could not find bundle: org.eclipse.equinox.console
	at org.eclipse.osgi.framework.internal.core.ConsoleManager.checkForConsoleBundle(
	at org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor.EclipseStarter.startup(
	at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
	at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source)
	at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source)
	at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Unknown Source)
	at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.invokeFramework(
	at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.basicRun(
	at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.main(

(The exception was thrown because I have the -console argument passed to my application).

So, I added this plugin to my launch configuration (with the required plugins). When I did that, the exception was not thrown anymore and the OSGi console was displayed in the Eclipse console, but my application didn't start. I had to type "ss" in the OSGi console and then the application was started properly.

If I remove this console plugin from my launch configuration, the FileDialog works fine, so I guess that the reason why it was hanging was because a plugin was not properly started (because of the console interfering ?)
