Eclipse just shuts down when using home made plugin [message #677328] Wed, 08 June 2011 08:00 Go to next message

Hi,

I use a home made plugin for Eclipse, that reads binary files (among other things).

When I test my project, launching a separate Eclipse Application from inside Eclipse (through the MANIFEST.MF file), everything works fine.

So I exported the plugin, and added it to my dropins folder. Eclipse launches fine, I can open my new perspective, all buttons menus and views are there.

When selecting the binary file to be read, Eclipse just shuts down (no warning, no message, nothing).
How can I get additional information about why Eclipse just shuts down ?

Regards,

Maxime Lecourt

Edit : I use Eclipse Helios, under WindowsXP


One day I shall master M2T, but that day has yet to come...

I looked at the log file in my workspace/.metadata directory, nothing special in it.

Hi

Start Eclipse from command line with the two options -debug -consoleLog.

Your description sounds to me like a JVM crash. More about analyzing the
core dumps:

Using the -debug option, Eclipse does not crash anymore.

There was a bug that was corrected in a branch of the plugin, but not on all, which might be the cause of the crash.
