Can I record and execute a ECL script in my current IDE without launching it as AUT?
I was thinking of using ECL as macro language to automate some of the Eclipse IDE tasks.

you might be able to do something that is similar to the approach described on https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/documentation/userguide/ecl/new-command-guide/ . I am referring to the telnet interface part. However, when we tried to use it we found it difficult to escape linefeeds in the telnet interface so we created a http server plugin (pretty similar to the telnet server). We also modified the AUT runner, so that it just starts the application but does not execute tests. The AUT will be idling around until it receives requests per http. We used that to interface RCPTT with Robot framework (http://robotframework.org/)
