Information for Reusing Eclipse Components within your RCP application
Goal of this Page
This page should collect hints on how to get the relevant information on how to use an extension from eclipse (like the project explorer, the perspective editor, standard commands etc), within your own Eclipse RCP application. The purpose is especially to collect the plugins and their ids, along with additional information on how to use the.
Please edit this page for it to become useful!
