7.8 Using Equinox Launcher

Since version 3.5 Virgo uses the standard Equinox Launcher as its default launcher. As a result in addition to all the launcher options described so far users can also pass arguments specific to the Equinox launcher.

The Equinox Launcher arguments must be placed at the end of the startup call. Here's an example
./startup.sh "virgo-args" "equinox-launcher-args"
./startup.sh -clean -console 2222

A full list of the accepted Equinox Launcher arguments is available at help.eclipse.org.
