I am pretty new to RCP plugins with eclipse.
When i created my plugin with the eciplse plugin-wizard everything worked fine. It runs good inside eclipse.
Then I exported the project and put the jar-file into the eclipse plugin folder and I tried to launch the application with
eclipsec -application com.eclipse.hello.application.application
but i always got these error message:

If i read that correct, the " Import-Package: org.apache.lucene.document" package is missing, or is it something else? I searched for hours on the web and i can not find these package. And my plugin is not found as well. I am using eclipse 2019-09 on Windows.
How can i run my plugin from the commandline?

Any help is welcome.

I was able to run my RCP application with the CL:

java -jar  C:\Users\hm\.p2\pool\plugins\org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.5.500.v20190715-1310.jar -application com.eclipse.hello.application -data C:\Users\hm\eclipse3\eclipse-workspace -configuration file:C:/Users/hm/eclipse3/eclipse-workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/com.eclipse.hello.application/ -dev file:C:/Users/hm/eclipse3/eclipse-workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/com.eclipse.hello.application/

I tried exporting my RCP plugin, so that it can be run with less options, but that did not worked. I have read several guides, but they seemed all a bit outdated.
Can someone name an actual guide how to export a simple RCP plugin so that it can be run from the CL? Or do I have to make it a product, to execute it?

Any help is really appreciated

I am now able to run my plugin from the command line, but now i encountered another problem. The plugin is build to import projects into eclipse with the commandline. When i have eclipse running i used the commandline to execute my plugin and it is creating and opening the projects, but they are not shown in the project explorer.

IWorkspace workspace = ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace();
                IProjectDescription description = workspace.loadProjectDescription(
                        new Path(projectFile.toString()));
                IProject project = workspace.getRoot().getProject(description.getName());
                if (project.isOpen() == false) {                	
                	project.create(description, null);
                       workspace.getRoot().refreshLocal(IWorkspaceRoot.DEPTH_INFINITE, null);
                   System.out.println("Allready open");

I know that they are open, because if i run the CL again the programm moves to the else branch. Which command can be used to show the projects in the projectexplorer?

Any help is welcome.
