Hello, I'm developing a WYSIWYG Eclipse plugin for my education at university. I want to look inside of WindowBuilder plugin to learn how it works and, maybe, use ui part from there.
I have cloned the repo. Right now I'm trying to import the plugin to my workspace and run/debug it, but import errors occurs every time.
Firstly, I was trying to import it as a plugin, but WindowBuilder consists of multiple plugins and features, so when I was trying to debug one of plugin, it couldn't find classes from another plugin. Lately I imported it as a project and was trying to debug it as a "Eclipse Application", new instance of Eclipse occured, but I didn't have option "Open with -> WindowBuilder Editor", and all my breakpoints was skipped.
The question is how can I import the existing plugin to be able to debug it? Or maybe there is another effective way how to see how a project works inside?
