We have a two applications one is a Eclipse Rich Client and another a regular Swing App.
Conceptually I need to Launch eclipse from the Swing App. This is because I need some bi-directional communication bewteen the two applications.
I know that I can use Runtime.exec() to lanch the eclipse App..but this creates a different process and it becomes harder to have bidirectional communitcation( i can use RMI but that will require a substantial amount of refcatoring).
I am wondering if anyone knows how to programtically launch eclipse in a seperate thread in a single JVM. Is this possible at all??
Any help pointers would be appreciated. With Regards Dutta
