Hi,

I've just started using Eclipse to work with SDOs. However, I have hit a problem with trying to launch the Eclipse run-time workbench. Basically when I go to the 'Run'>'Run...' menu, 'Run-time workbench' is not showing up as an option. I've trawled the net but all the doco seems to assume it will be there by default.
'Eclipse Application' does show up as an option, are they the same thing or am I missing something more basic?
I'm running Eclipse 3.1.1, and MyEclipse 4.0.3.

Thanks,

John

John,
I don't see it either. A lot of capabilities are off by default though.

I did a search in the Eclipse documentation for "runtime workbench". The second entry titled "running the plug-in" included:

The PDE tool can be used to run another workbench from within your current workbench. This runtime workbench is handy for testing new plug-ins immediately as you develop them from your workbench. (For more information about how a runtime workbench works, check the PDE guide.)
For simplicity, we'll run the new plug-in from within the Eclipse workbench.

Launching the workbench
To launch a runtime workbench, choose Run > Run.... This dialog will show you all the different kinds of ways you can launch a program. Choose Eclipse Application, click New and accept all of the default settings. This will cause another instance of the Eclipse workbench, the runtime workbench, to start.


So it sounds like the Eclipse workbench is the same thing.

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks very much for the help. I suspected the 'runtime workbench' and the 'Eclipse application' were the same thing but I wasn't sure.

Thanks,

John
