I'm building a plugin in Eclipse 3.5 on Windows which is a text editor for
a language that my group works with. I distributed it as a .jar and just
had people place it in the dropins folder. The problem is it doesn't run
on any of the Macs that my coworkers use, but it seems to work fine on my
PC and the one other PC in the group. When run on a Mac, the plugin is
simply not detected by Eclipse. No errors are generated as far as I can
tell, I've checked the log files and run Eclipse in debug mode with no
results. I've also tried -clean with no success. It's as if the file's not
even there.

I'm brand-new to Eclipse and Eclipse plugin development, so I did some
googling and found out about the Delta Packs, installed the one for my
version and retargeted my plugin. (Just to be sure I did it right, I
unzipped the delta pack to a folder and then added that folder to the
"Running Platform" configuration for the plugin targets.) Even after that
we get the same result on the Mac -> no result at all. Since I have to bug
a coworker every time I want to try something I haven't checked the error
logs after trying the Delta Pack'd version.

I suspect it's just something simple that I need to do that I'm not aware
of since I'm reverse-engineering this process from stuff I found on google
and the newsgroups here, or it might be related to the infamous OSX/SWT
issue, I don't know if that's been resolved or not. Any help at all is
