Talk:Starting Eclipse Commandline With Equinox Launcher

From Eclipsepedia

Jump to: navigation, search

I just changed the batch file code snippet because what was there did not work at all (and I am running Windows XP). The dir command was entirely wrong, and when executing as an executable JAR file you don't need to specify the org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main part.

I also updated the match pattern in the bash script to reflect reality as well.

Oh - and some time ago I added an Ant 1.7 version that does not involve copying resources around.

Thoughts in order of priority:

  1. Thank you for contributing and updating this, Mark!
  2. You must be using XP Pro (NT kernel), not XP Home (Windows 95 kernel), which does things differently at the commandline. Can you update the wiki again to reflect which version of XP you tested this with (and which service pack, too)
  3. I believe the equinox jar has more than one Main class (or it used to when I first wrote this). Are you sure it always finds the right one if you aren't explicit about which one you want? More to the point, what's wrong with being explicit? ;-)
