Hi all,

I need to start the regular workbench application (org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench) from the OSGi console (3.8)

The set of plugins I have are complete since I'm able to see org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench in the list returned by 'apps' command.

But starting this application with startApp throws an ApplicationException : The main thread is not available to launch the application: org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench.0.

I understand some applications can be launched in the main thread, other can't.
But, what is the purpose of that?

Is there a way to launch the workbench application from the OSGi console?

Another question: Is it still impossible to have two workbench in a single osgi instance? Is there a workaround?

Thank you.
