Most platform functionality is implemented in plugins.

I'm trying to figure out what plugin/s is/are responsible for certain actions. In my case specifically, figuring out which ones are responsible for import resolution in java files:

for the line `import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;`, eclipse will give me an error: `the import org.openqa cannot be resolved`, while for the line `import java.util.Iterator` it just knows what we're talking about.

How can I find and dissect those behaviors, to better understand how the resolution works?

My guess is that using maven, and some existing collection of multiple jars, eclipse will look in those to resolve the import. When that fails, eclipse will give the `cannot resolve import` error, and allow me to figure it out through an import search window that doesn't actually find anything...

I doubt that debugging how JDT implements scoping and classpath lookup (helped by PDE perhaps) is going to be the best way to figure out what's wrong. What have you done to configure the Java project (Plug-in project?) to add the necessary jars (plug-ins) to the classpath? Or in other words, where is this class located and what have you done to add that location to the classpath of the project?
