Unable to launch RCP with @nodefault after upgrading to neon [message #1736863] Mon, 04 July 2016 03:13

we have a 3.x based rcp running compatibility fine in 4.5.1 since that came out. I upgraded to neon to try it out and am unable to launch. we launch with @nodefault for instance location as we allow our user to pick from various servers and then set the instancelocation programatically based on their selection so they can run multiple instances of the app at the same time. If I set the location to something arbitrary we launch fine, but then of course we can't set the workspace programatically because of the inability to 'change' the workspace once it is set.

The ResourcePlugin appears to now need the instancelocation set before it used to (just guessing):
ResourcesPlugin.start throws an exception
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: The instance data location has not been specified yet.

Looking for ways to get @nodefault working again if anyone has any idea.
