Hi,

I was wondering how to import an installed Eclipse plug-in so I can modify
it to fix bugs and add features. I used the import wizard (File -> import
-> Plug-ins and Fragments). I chose import as "Projects with source
folders".

The plug-in imports all right but if I bring changes to the code, they do
not take effect when I run the project. (I have made sure i'm not running
the platform version, it's the project)

If this can help : If I add breakpoints to the code, I can suspend the
runtime-application in debug mode, but as soon as I modify the code of a
java file, any breakpoints I thereof put on that .java file are ignored
while in debug mode.

I would be sincerely thankfull to anyone who could help with this problem.

Jean-Rémi

1. Did you clean and rebuild the workspace?
Note currently the binary plugin import gets the class files too
2. Make sure the Lauch Configuration correctly includes the plugin from your workspace and not from the target. btw..which eclipse you are using? 3.4.x?

I cleaned and rebuilt the workspace as well as added the source folder to
the build path. I have also made sure the Launch Configuration includes
the plug-in from my workspace and not form the target.

I am using version 3.4.2

I got Eclipse 3.5 and tried it and it works.
So Eclipse 3.5 from now on I guess.

Thanks anyway,
