[platform-dev] Recompiling Mac's native launcher


I'm part of a team that develops an RCP application that is still based on the Eclipse 3 framework.

I know we should've migrated years ago, we're porting it now, but the current version of our system is still alive and needs maintenance, and that's why I'm here.

The recent release of the new MacOS, Sonoma, broke our menus (see here), and we discovered that the source of the problem is the native launcher.  If we launch our application using java -jar plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.jar, the menus work as expected.

We then started building an executable jar that performs the call and handles all the other tasks needed (reading the .ini file, handling restarts, so on).

But then this idea came to me, that recompiling the native launcher might solve the problem.  This way, we would not need to mess around with a different executable jar.

Do you think this is possible?  If so, is there a page with detailed information on how we could achieve this?
