I am using perspectiveExtensions extension point as follows :

<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.perspectiveExtensions">
<perspectiveExtension
targetID="*">
<newWizardShortcut
id="id of new wizard">
</newWizardShortcut>
</perspectiveExtension>
</extension>

I want it to be applicable for all perspectives.When I launch this plugin from plugin.xml it works fine but if I export the plugin and put it in plugins folder of eclipse and launch eclipse ,
it doesn't work for JavaEE perspective. I cant see my wizard in JavaEE.

Please guide me.
Thanks in advance.

You can't just add a plugin to the eclipse/plugins folder, so you
installed it, right?

If you install it properly and you open a workspace that's already
created, you might have to reset your perspective in order to see it.

Thanks Paul. Reset of perspective works.

But what I observe is : when I install my plugin and restart eclipse my wizard gets added in File->new menu for all perspectives except the one which was active before restart of eclipse.

How to reset that active perspective programatically when eclipse is being launched after restart, so that user doesn't have to reset that active perspective manually?

In an RCP app you can use some of the WorkbenchAdvisor or
WorkbenchWindowAdvisor methods to modify the WorkbenchWindows after
they've been restored but before they've been shown.
