I have eclipse plugin which is developed by third party and i want to extend that plugin to customize as per my requirement.

so i created a new plugin project and mentioned other plugin as dependency plugin, but while running the plugin i am facing some initilization errors.

is there any way , how to debug the existing plug in Eclipse?

You would use Eclipse to debug a separate instance of itself, just as any plug-in developer does many, many times a day. You wouldn't want to debug your actual instance because you might corrupt the on-disk metadata of your workspace by trying to modify it from more than one process, plus a triggered UI breakpoint would freeze your debug UI.

Thanks for your reply.

Let me explain clearly.

I have Eclipse1 with a third party plugins, now i want to to extend those plugin to modify something on the UI.

I have downloaded a new eclipse and file-->import-->plug-in Developement-->plug-ins and fragments

so it imported third party plug in and all the dependent plug-ins.
now i tried to run as eclipse application and getting the below error

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to acquire application service. Ensure that the org.eclipse.core.runtime bundle is resolved and started (see config.ini).

my question is now a days all the client tools are developing on eclipse platform ex:informatica client or cloever ETL.
can we import those tolls plugins in to standalone Eclipse and can we try to test/debug those thirdparty plugins?
