"dropins" folder in RCP application [message #130007] Tue, 28 April 2009 22:18 Go to next message

Reposting this from eclipse.platform.rcp, maybe someone here knows more:

I'm looking for a simple way to deploy (optional) OSGi bundles in an RCP
application.

The only way I can get bundles to start right now is to copy them into the
plugins folder, and either have another plugin require them, list them in
the config.ini file, or start them via an OSGi console.

Instead I'd like to use the p2 "dropins" folder mechanism, but I haven't
found clear instructions how to enable that in an RCP application
(currently based on 3.5M6) -- assuming it's even possible.

Managed to get that to work, meanwhile, by including a large number of
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.* bundles... However there is still the issue that
bundles dropped there are not started (they just appear as RESOLVED) until
I start them manually (e.g. via the OSGi console). Is this supposed to be
this way, and if so, is there a way to have dropin bundles started
automatically?

Hey Eric,

Even I am stuck in a similar situation currently. I would like to have a dropins folder for my RCP. But they are never started.

Could you please tell me how did you get the dropped plugins included in the RCP. And I am using eclipse helios for development.

Thanks in advance for help

Best Regards,
Murthy

Hello,

I think i found the solution.I had missed out to add 'org.eclipse.equinox.ds'. Added the plugin and made some changes in the configuration and it worked.

Referred below for info:
