Selecting Eclipse application version in launch command [message #485098] Thu, 10 September 2009 14:11

I am responsible in my project for an Eclipse application plugin that does
some headless workspace configuration.

After some large changes to the project, I now have to maintain two
different versions of the plugin. But the branching introduced a problem.
If both versions (using eclipses plugin versioning) are available to
Eclipse (copied to its plugin directory), how can I tell Eclipse which one
to use when launching the application?

I invoke the plugin this way:
eclipse.exe -data <path to workspace> -application <package>.<class> <some
arguments to the plugin>

What I'd like to do is to tell Eclipse to use 1.x.x or 2.x.x, but the
version isn't included in the application argument. Is there some other
CLI-based way to specify which version of the plugin that is to be used?

I've looked at
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/topic/ org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/running_eclipse.htm
but couldn't any argument for plugin control. Is it possible to use
-configuration to specify a certain version of a plugin but, aside from
that, without interfering with the default configuration?
