Hi all,

I am adding some features to plug-in org.eclipse.wst.xml.ui which is part of Eclipse XML Editor.
What I did is to edit some existing .java files and add some new files for a new view.

I works fine when I do "Run as Eclipse Application" but then I have problems when I try to deploy it.

In eclipse/plugins there is of course a .jar file with the same name; this jar is signed.
I put my plugins in eclipse/dropin folder but it is not loaded, it always loads the default one...why?

Where can the problem be?
I thought that it was enough to change the plugin...but probably "somewhere" it always loads the default one.

I tried to create an "Hello World" plug-in, put it in the dropin folder and it works.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
