View source for plugins not in target platform [message #43936] Mon, 02 February 2009 21:55 Go to next message

I develop against a custom minimal target platform. However, I like to
browse the greater SDK source code to find usage examples, use plug-in
spy, etc.

Currently, I use a second workspace with the full SDK target, but is
there a way to add the other plugins to "External Plug-in Libraries" or
something similar that would allow me to stay in the same workspace?

Thanks,
Will

Is there a specific reason why you don't just include the source plugins
in your target platform?

Will,

I believe you'll get what you want if you open the Plug-ins View, select
them all, right-click and select "Add to Java search"

Regards,
Todd

A lot of the IDE will never be appropriate for my RCP application (JDT, PDE,
Mylyn, etc). I'd like to have their classes/source available for browsing
during development, while still preserving a pristine target platform for
building/running my RCP app.

Unfortunately this only works if the Plug-ins are already in the target
platform.
