How Do I Show a Splash Screen for an RCP Application Launched via Java Web Start? [message #778663] Fri, 13 January 2012 16:17

I currently have an RCP application that displays a splash screen when run. This works fine when my application is launched through the Eclipse IDE or when my product is exported and run.

However, when I create and export a deployable feature that includes my product and the equinox launcher for launching via Java Web Start, my splash screen does not show.

In my main JNLP I have included the following sections:

<application-desc main-class="org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.WebStartMain">
   <argument>-showsplash</argument>
</application-desc>

<resources>
   <jar href="plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.1.1.R36x_v20101122_1400.jar"/>

   <extension name="My Feature" href="features/myFeature.jnlp"/>

   <property name="osgi.instance.area" value="@user.home/myApp"/>
   <property name="osgi.install.area" value="@user.home/myApp/osgi"/>
   <property name="osgi.configuration.area" value="@user.home/myApp"/>
   <property name="osgi.splashPath" value="platform:/base/plugins/<my jar that contains splash.bmp>"/>

   <property name="eclipse.product" value="<my product id>"/>
</resources>


When launching my application using Java Web Start, it opens and runs fine but I don't get the splash screen to show up when it is starting.

I am using the launcher included with Eclipse Helios SR2 Build id: 20110218-0911.

Are there some other tags I am missing or is this a bug?
