Eclipse stopped treating plug-in project as a plug-in project - again! [message #600554] Tue, 11 August 2009 22:46

I posted this comment last month. Since then, I have encountered the
problem again.

I have an OSGi plug-in that I am using in Eclipse and testing in the
built-in equinox OSGi container. I'm using a bunch of other bundles with
it. At some point after closing an instance of the server, Eclipse just
decides that this isn't a bundle anymore. Other bundles that are
dependent on the exported packages say that these packages are no longer
available. The package no longer shows up in the run configuration
check-box list.

The PDE menu does not, however, give me the option of converting the
project to a plug-in project. It realizes the project already IS a
plug-in. It's the rest of the PDE that disagrees. I 've checked all of
the plugin, classpath files, etc. Is there some kind of external file,
perhaps the run-configuration file, that would contain config data
determining whether or not this project gets treated like a plug in?

It's frustrating - the only way I could fix the problem last time was make
a new plug in project under a different name and copy everything to it.

Note, this is an entirely different plug-in from the one I had problems
with in the past.
