Re: [platform-dev] editor in RCP app not working

Correct.  Editors don't open by themselves.  From your 
WorkbenchWindowAdvisor's postWindowOpen method you could call 
getWindowConfigurer().getWindow().getActivePage().openEditor(...), but 
you'll need to pass a dummy input.
Just create a dummy implementation of IEditorInput.  You won't want to 
open things from postWindowOpen() in a real app, but that should get you 
up and running.  The next step would be to write a view, from which your 
editor is opened, with its input coming from the selected object from 
whatever your domain is.  Or at least, that's how things often work.

I expected the latter - that an instance of the editor is created when
the app is started. I just wanted to have a demo like app, because
currently there is no input for the editor...

I guess I have to create at least some "dummy" input...
