Hi everybody,

My problem is that the intro page is not shown when I launch the product.

I have followed the steps:

1. File - New - Project - Eclipse E4 Application Project, with the default settings
2. Add the extensions : org.eclipse.ui.intro, org.eclipse.ui.intro.universal Dependencies on the plugin.xml file and also in the *.product file.
3. Add and intro extension with its intro configuration just as shown on web tutorials.

When I launch the project it works fine but no intro page appears. I clear the workspace and I am using eclipse Kepler. Since this doesn't seem to be a bug, does anybody have any idea why is this happening?

Thanks in advance,

I have run into the same problem.

public class MyIntroPart extends IntroPart {

	public void createPartControl(Composite container) {
		Composite outerContainer = new Composite(container, SWT.NONE);
		GridLayout gridLayout = new GridLayout();
		Label label = new Label(outerContainer, SWT.CENTER);
		label.setText("WELCOME TO ECLIPSE");
		GridData gd = new GridData(GridData.GRAB_HORIZONTAL | GridData.GRAB_VERTICAL);
		gd.horizontalAlignment = GridData.CENTER;
		gd.verticalAlignment = GridData.CENTER;

	public void standbyStateChanged(boolean standby) {


	public void setFocus() {



I selected the Welcome Page in the test.product under Branding.

i also have tried to remove the generetes workspace when Launch as Eclipse application.

What did i miss or what's the poroblem
