I have created a plugin project in eclipse to create a new category and view. I run the MANIFEST.MF file as an eclipse application which opens a new eclipse window and I can see my plugin take affect. However, I want the plugin to be part of my standard eclipse installation.

For this I have exported the project to a jar, put the jar in the plugins folder and restarted eclipse. But I cannot see the changes take affect. I have also tried running eclipse from the command prompt with -clean option to force eclipse to search for new plugins. I have also tried putting the jar file in the dropins folder and restarting but nothing is working.

Any idea on what I might be missing ? I know the other option is to create feature but I wanted to understand what is wrong or missing in my approach.

Regards, Dev

Maybe Eclipse is unable to register or load your jar directly from the plugins folder. It may be because you might not have included the plugin dependencies inside your jar.
