You could also get the eclipse.exe from
M5 and put that in the eclipse folder and launch using that:
eclipse -console -configuration configuration

[equinox-dev] Where to start framework?
I am new to equinox and started with the quickstart guide on eclipse-equinox-SDK-3.3M5.zip.
i tried the command:
java -jar org.eclipse.osgi_xxx.jar -console but added the plugins/ suffix
to the jar file and it ran fine.
Then I tried using common and org.eclipse.update.configurator (again, from
an 3.3M5 eclipse zip) by adding the osgi.bundle lines in the quickstart
and puttin the org.eclipse.update.configurator_xxx.jar into the plugins
dir. i put the config.ini file into configuration. my directory
now looks like this:
i am in c:/eclipse and i started the framework like this:
it starts up and the 3 bundles (framework, common, configurator) are active
but nothing else. and when i try the "bundles" command i don't
see the additional bundles (logging, etc) installed. i checked the
log and i see this entry:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.update.configurator 2007-02-23 00:14:50.703
!MESSAGE C:\eclipse\plugins\plugins is not a valid plugins directory.
in the quickstart it says that the configurator will discver and install
bundes in the plugins dir beside the equinox jar. so, besides
cding into the plugins dir, is there another way to run from the base dir
and have it discover the plugins dir from there?
thanks in advance for your help.
