I am trying to load a custom plugin for eclipse to Vitis 2019.2.

Vitis is an IDE for embedded programming by Xilinx and it is integrated with eclipse of version Photon (2018) as far as i know...

The plugin was created by in eclipse, and is loaded by copying the .jar file to the plugins folder of eclipse as detailed here:

The plugin is working fine in Eclipse photon C IDE ,
however, when copying the plugin file to C:\Xilinx\Vitis\2019.2\eclipse\win64.o\plugins\ - (eclipse source for Vitis) it doesn't appear when Vitis Loads.

I know this problem might be more related to Xilinx other than eclipse but I was wondering if anyone knows if this issue might be related to the integration of eclipse in Xilinx Vitis..

Any help is welcome

It seems like Vitis doesn't enable auto-detection of new plugins from the plugins/ folder.
In Eclipse IDE, it's usually recommended to create a p2 repository/update-site for your plugin(s) and use it to install them. This can happen via UI (Help > Install New Software) or command-line (./eclipse -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director ... ; see ). I don't know whether Vitis includes the necessary plugins to use one or the other approach.
Another possibility in Eclipse IDE is to try to dropins/ folder. See .
I suggest you instead get in touch with Vitis support to get more insights about what works or is supposed to work. If you don't get any answer, you can still try one the of things mentioned above; there are chances one of them works.
