I want make DVD Catalog application using SWT. This application will like to Eclipse: advanced GUI, main skeleton + plugin manager and plugins for reading zip,arj,tar contents (and several functionality in plugins). I plan use SWT + JFace + another jars of Eclipse. Which at least/minimal jars of Eclipse I must use to manage of plugins?

Hi,

I'm not the greatest expert on Eclipse tech, but what you need sounds a lot like Eclipse-RCP to me. Basically, it provides you the plug-in mechanism, window mechanisms and all the other stuff you love about your eclipse, just without "content". You can find plenty of tutorials on the web, for example this one: http://www.vogella.com/articles/Eclipse3RCP/article.html

Your Eclipse-RCP-Application will *only* contain the plug-ins that you select yourself (and the ones that your selected plug-ins depend on, of course). Is that what you need?

Best regards,

Alan
