Hi,

i have created a sample preference page through preference page wizard.
The preference page is displayed on running the plug-in as an eclipse
application.

However, if i export my plug-in , and later on want to open the preference
page through window->preferences,the preference page is not listed there.

What could be wrong?

Thanks for any help,

Sana

How you are deploying the plugin? You have to either copy it in "dropins" folder. Better options
would be to
1. When exporting the plugin, "Install into host, repository" option
2. OR Make a feature and update site to deploy it.

Whichever way you do, you need to first check if the plugin is getting picked or not. Do this by
checking Help -> About Eclipse -> Installation details -> Plugins.
