Hi, I`m wondering if anyone have experience debugging the eclipse platform? By this I mean starting up an eclipse instance from a project inside another eclipse workspace. Is this possible? I want to be able to debug and possibly fix some bugs (in plugins) that I encounter while I develop. I`ve got little experience in open source contribution, but I can`t see how I could contribute effectively if I can`t debug the whole plattform......?
Anyone have something to share on this? [ October 26, 2007: Message edited by: Haakon Lind ]
That's certainly possible, Eclipse has a set of tools to develop plug-ins for Eclipse itself or for Eclipse RCP (Rich Client Platform) applications. Have a look at this Eclipse RCP tutorial, for example.
