I am updating Eclipse RCP application from Indigo(3.7.0) to Photon(4.8.0), and I am facing issue with loading plug-ins.

Eclipse Photon(4.8.0) RCP Application is not able to load Plugins which are copied to the plugin directory unless bundles-info is updated with the plug-in details.

This was working fine in the Indigo version.

I want to use plug-ins directory and I am using eclipse.core.runtime instead of simpleconfigurator in config.ini file `osgi.bundles=org.eclipse.equinox.common@2:start,org.eclipse.update.configurator@3:start,org.eclipse.core.runtime@start`

Can I make any changes to load plugins automatically?

You can use the dropins folder. See the following for details:
