This is an extension of the SWT Startup Problem...

I still don't understand how to run and swt application in the new "all
plugins are jars" configuration of M6. In the thread "SWT Startup
Problem" people unpack the org.eclipse.swt.win32_3.1.0.jar file, that
doesnt seem like a very good solution.

If we have to unpack the jar every time a new version of eclipse is
installed I have to go find the jar, unpack it, and add it to the
classpath? Isn't that the purpose of "Run->SWT Application"? My RCP
application works fine, leading me to believe that eclipse should handle
the .dll dependency for me if I am running it as a "SWT Application".

Anyone have a good solution for this?
Thanks, Nick.

I agree that the thought process behind the changes leave me mystified.
Even after I unpacked the dll's I couldnt get my app to run unless I
ran it as a Java app instead of a SWT app.
