What is the Eclipse way to modify the workbench by switching perspectives or changing a perspective? [message #1803060] Thu, 21 February 2019 14:19

Please redirect me to the right forum if applicable; I could not find it.

I am new to Eclipse plugin development. The plugin I work on has a perspective which is not best for a new use case my team needs to support. I want the workbench to change when the user opens a file with a specific extension. It could be a matter of switching perspective or to modify to the current perspective by opening and closing views.

What is the Eclipse way to achieve this?

It seems to me more user friendly to do this automatically but the more I read about it the more I have the impression that Eclipse is not designed with this in mind. Should I just create a new perspective and have the user open it instead?
