I'm writing a plugin for Eclipse and since somedays i'm searching how to
get current project's name and full path (i.e.
C:\...\workspace\projectname).

I've read all articles and all emails and i tried all codes given but
unfortunately no success no success.

Please kindly can anyone give me a working solution. I think i need
dependencies, import declerations lines and codeline.

Any help will be really very very appreciated.

Thanx in advance.

Ran,

IResource.getLocation()/getLocationURI() should do the trick.

Thank you but org.eclipse.core.resources.IResource don't have
getLocation() method.

I tried also
org.eclipse.core.resources.Resourcesplugin.getWorkspace().ge tRoot().getLocation()
but this give this path:
"C:\...\My Documents\runtime-EclipseApplication".

But I'm searching how to get this path:
"C:\...\My Documents\workspace".

+ additionally i'm searching how to get projectname.

The getName method is in that API as well.

Dear Ed,

I saw, yes you have reason, there is getLocation() method here. Than i
tried different uses with this, for example:

org.eclipse.core.resources.IResource iresource;
System.out.println(iresource.getLocation());


But this returns a null response, so unfortunately, i can't find the exact
code solution with this (and others) suggestion. If you (or anotherone)
can kindly give me a working codeline, it will be really very appreciated.

Thanx again.

Noyan,

Perhaps the resource doesn't actually exist or something else is wrong?
The getLocationURI is more general, you might try that. If these are
both returning null there's likely something going on you've not told us
about.

Is there a method such:
org.eclipse.core.resources.IResource iresource = new IResource(this);


Or the code below automatically detect the current selected project?
org.eclipse.core.resources.IResource iresource;
System.out.println(iresource.getLocation());

Well because IResource is an interface this is not very likely :-)

Hello Ed and others,

I found the trick for workspace location. Here is my code:
org.eclipse.core.resources.ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().ge tRoot().getLocation()

When i run this for testing via "Launc an Eclipse Application" or "Run
Eclipse Application" buttons, it returns this location:
workspace: C:/Documents and Settings/rbt/My
Documents/runtime-EclipseApplication

But when i export it as a "Deployable Plug-in" (File->Export->Deployable
plug-ins and fragments), restart Eclipse and execute it as deployable
plugin. This time, it returns this location:
C:/Documents and Settings/rbt/My Documents/workspace

I wrote this for future researchers. I hope this help them.


NOW I HAVE STILL MY OTHER QUESTION
and it is more important now. Beause i want to obtain this path:
C:/Documents and Settings/rbt/My Documents/workspace/projectname

How can i get the project's name? I tried
org.eclipse.core.resources.ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().ge tRoot().getProject()
but this returns null..


Thank you in advance

Noyan,

I get the feeling you haven't read any of the basic documentation about
Eclipse's workspace APIs. I'd suggest becoming familiar with what's
available in help:

http://help.eclipse.org/help33/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. platform.doc.user/concepts/concepts-12.htm

Folks will be far more likely to answer questions if it's clearly you've
done a little bit of homework first.

This will always reflect where the workspace itself is located. Project
will not necessarily be physically nested within that folder since when
a project is created you can specify anywhere in the file system at
which to locate it.

You really need to read some basic information. To root itself is not
in a project and projects cannot nest. If you look at the API for
IWorkspaceRoot you'll see methods like getProject(String) and
getProjects. Please try to use the Javadoc to help answer your questions...

Do you already have the selected project in hand? If not, it becomes
important to understand where you will expect this to come from...

Noyan,

You seem to have repeated your question... Of course the answer is you
call IProject.getName, but I think you are asking about how to get "the
selected project" but you've not provided any context in which to answer
that. The IDE is full of views and can even have multiple windows, so
you'll need to narrow down the context of your question for anyone to be
able to answer it...

Hi Noyan,
I have an novice user to eclipse PDE. Currently I am developing one plugin. In this pluging I am generating some java classes.
This is done by Wizard.
Wizard asks some question and in the end it executes the command.

So
1) Before executing the wizard i want to check whether the workspace contains any project of not? If no project then Error message.
2) If their are some projects in the workspace then which is the current active project? I mean if instead of clicking on the Project Tree if user directly invokes the Wizard from toolbar then to which project I should add those classes? I mean is their any concept like active project or main project? If yes then how to get the main project?

Can you help me in above 2 scenarios(What hooks and where they should be added)?

This is the code of execute method of command

public Object execute(ExecutionEvent event) throws ExecutionException {
MySupportWizard wizard = new MySupportWizard();
WizardDialog dialog = new WizardDialog(HandlerUtil.getActiveShell(event), wizard);
dialog.open();
return null;
}
}

Regards,
sHrik
