I have the Java developer version of Eclipse installed, and now I want to get some experience with RCP. I've found the tutotial at http://www.vogella.de/articles/RichClientPlatform/article.ht ml. In section 6.2 it talks about adding a new command By right-clicking in the Extensions pane of plugin.xml and has an note that says "Lots of people report that if they try this they can only select a "Generic" entry. The common source of this problem seems to be that you did not download the package "Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in Developers"". |
In section 2 however it states" In case you have downloaded the Eclipse Java IDE (or any other non RCP flavor) distribution you can use the Eclipse Update Manager to install the plugins required for RCP development. See Eclipse Update Manager for details on using the update manager.
Install "General Purpose Tools" -> "Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment" and "Eclipse RCP Plug-in Developer Resources" from the Galileo update site. ". I have tried this, but can't find the "Eclipse RCP Plug-in Developer Resources" (or anything similar) anywhere.
I have created an RCP project following the instructions in the tutorial. When I try to add a new command (or anything else) all I get is the 'Generic' option. Also, I get warnings that "No schema found for the 'org.eclipse.ui.commands' extension point" (and each of the other defined extension points).
Can anyone explain what I am missing, and how to get properly configured without installing a different package.
