I created an RCP application that handles files with extension "*.FSD" (EMF Model).
The application can open multiple editors for different files.

I would like to associate the extension FSD in windows with my RCP application. So when the user double click on a file it opens in teh RCP application.

However, Each time I open the file, it opens a NEW RCP instance of my application. How can I reuse the existing instance and not open a new one (just like Excel that there is one running code with multiple tabs).

Is there a way in Eclipse to support routing the command line back to the runing instance or something similar.

See the Eclipse Help section on the --launcher.defaultAction and --launcher.openFile.
