Hi,
I would like to know how do I get the source code for Package Explorer and
Outline Window...???

Is there any way to debug it?

Hi,

Generally speaking you 'll have to identify which eclips eplug-in is
contributing the feature you want to have code and then in the plug-in
view from PDE perspective right click on this plug-in and select import as
source plug-in.

Of course, to do that you will need an SDK version of Eclipse.

For exampel, the outline view is provided by the org.eclipse.ui.views
plug-in

Hope this help

Manu

You can find "behind the scenes" plugins using Plug-in spy. It will work
only in 3.4 onwards though.

Start your Eclipse. Open the Package Explorer and press Alt + Shift + F1
to invoke the Spy. It will show you the contributing plug-in and class.
You can click it view the source code. You can do the same on Outline
window or any other Eclipse view/editor.

To debug the code, you will have to import the source bundles in your
workspace. Put the breakpoints. Create a new launch config of type
Eclipse Application. Debug using this config.
