Hi

I couldn't find some valuable information concerning relaunching RCP Application. My problem is that my application after returning code IApplication.EXIT_RELAUNCH terminates and only print command line (which is setting by system properties as a "eclipse.exitdata".
Can anyone can explain me in more details how to relaunch with new command line. (My aim is to change language in application)

EDIT_RELAUNCH only works when launching from the equinox launcher. If you launch using java -jar ... it wouldn't work. I thought Debug had been updated to re-launch an application if it got that exit code, but I'm not sure about that.

I switched to run under OSGi runtime, still doesn't work. Maybe I have omitted something?

Is there a resolution to this problem?

I'm using Kepler 4.3.2, the debugger is using the launcher org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.

Yet, returning EXIT_RELAUNCH from an IApplication implementation does not relaunch.

eclipse.commands System property is:

-launcher\nC:\\ws\\.metadata\\.plugins\\org.eclipse.pde.core\\.bundle_pool\\eclipse.exe\n
-name\nEclipse\n
-showsplash\n600\n
-product\ncom.xxx.yyy.product\n
-configuration\nfile:C:/APPBASE/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/com.lgc.dsp.base.product/\n
-dev\nfile:C:/ws/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/com.xxx.yyy.product/dev.properties\n
-os\nwin32\n
-ws\nwin32\n
-arch\nx86_64\n
-nl\nen_US\n
-consoleLog\n
...

Adding "-exitdata arbitrary_value" argument to Debug Configuration Arguments does not help EXIT_RELAUNCH to relaunch the app.

However, it does provoke org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main::setExitData to pass exitdata along to JNIBridge::setExitData rather than merely printing out exitdata and exiting.
