Constructor Detail

VMRunnerConfiguration

public VMRunnerConfiguration(
String classToLaunch,
                             
String[] classPath)
Creates a new configuration for launching a VM to run the given main class using the given class path.

Parameters:
classToLaunch - The fully qualified name of the class to launch. May not be null.
classPath - The classpath. May not be null.
Method Detail

setVMSpecificAttributesMap

public void setVMSpecificAttributesMap(
Map map)
Sets the Map that contains String name/value pairs that represent VM-specific attributes.

Parameters:
map - the Map of VM-specific attributes.
Since:
2.0

setVMArguments

public void setVMArguments(
String[] args)
Sets the custom VM arguments. These arguments will be appended to the list of VM arguments that a VM runner uses when launching a VM. Typically, these VM arguments are set by the user. These arguments will not be interpreted by a VM runner, the client is responsible for passing arguments compatible with a particular VM runner.

Parameters:
args - the list of VM arguments

setProgramArguments

public void setProgramArguments(
String[] args)
Sets the custom program arguments. These arguments will be appended to the list of program arguments that a VM runner uses when launching a VM (in general: none). Typically, these VM arguments are set by the user. These arguments will not be interpreted by a VM runner, the client is responsible for passing arguments compatible with a particular VM runner.

Parameters:
args - the list of arguments

setEnvironment

public void setEnvironment(
String[] environment)
Sets the environment for the Java program. The Java VM will be launched in the given environment.

Parameters:
environment - the environment for the Java program specified as an array of strings, each element specifying an environment variable setting in the format name=value
Since:
3.0

setBootClassPath

public void setBootClassPath(
String[] bootClassPath)
Sets the boot classpath. Note that the boot classpath will be passed to the VM "as is". This means it has to be complete. Interpretation of the boot class path is up to the VM runner this object is passed to.

In release 3.0, support has been added for appending and prepending the boot classpath. Generally an IVMRunner should use the prepend, main, and append boot classpaths provided. However, in the case that an IVMRunner does not support these options, a complete bootpath should also be specified.

Parameters:
bootClassPath - The boot classpath. An empty array indicates an empty bootpath and null indicates a default bootpath.

getVMSpecificAttributesMap

public 
Map getVMSpecificAttributesMap()
Returns the Map that contains String name/value pairs that represent VM-specific attributes.

Returns:
The Map of VM-specific attributes or null.
Since:
2.0

getClassToLaunch

public 
String getClassToLaunch()
Returns the name of the class to launch.

Returns:
The fully qualified name of the class to launch. Will not be null.

getClassPath

public 
String[] getClassPath()
Returns the classpath.

Returns:
the classpath

getBootClassPath

public 
String[] getBootClassPath()
Returns the boot classpath. An empty array indicates an empty bootpath and null indicates a default bootpath.

In 3.0, support has been added for prepending and appending to the boot classpath. The new attributes are stored in the VM specific attributes map using the following keys defined in IJavaLaunchConfigurationConstants:

  • ATTR_BOOTPATH_PREPEND
  • ATTR_BOOTPATH_APPEND
  • ATTR_BOOTPATH

Returns:
The boot classpath. An empty array indicates an empty bootpath and null indicates a default bootpath.
See Also:
setBootClassPath(String[]), IJavaLaunchConfigurationConstants

getVMArguments

public 
String[] getVMArguments()
Returns the arguments to the VM itself.

Returns:
The VM arguments. Default is an empty array. Will not be null.
See Also:
setVMArguments(String[])

getProgramArguments

public 
String[] getProgramArguments()
Returns the arguments to the Java program.

Returns:
The Java program arguments. Default is an empty array. Will not be null.
See Also:
setProgramArguments(String[])

getEnvironment

public 
String[] getEnvironment()
Returns the environment for the Java program or null

Returns:
The Java program environment. Default is null
Since:
3.0

setWorkingDirectory

public void setWorkingDirectory(
String path)
Sets the working directory for a launched VM.

Parameters:
path - the absolute path to the working directory to be used by a launched VM, or null if the default working directory is to be inherited from the current process
Since:
2.0

getWorkingDirectory

public 
String getWorkingDirectory()
Returns the working directory of a launched VM.

Returns:
the absolute path to the working directory of a launched VM, or null if the working directory is inherited from the current process
Since:
2.0

setResumeOnStartup

public void setResumeOnStartup(boolean resume)
Sets whether the VM is resumed on startup when launched in debug mode. Has no effect when not in debug mode.

Parameters:
resume - whether to resume the VM on startup
Since:
3.0

isResumeOnStartup

public boolean isResumeOnStartup()
Returns whether the VM is resumed on startup when launched in debug mode. Has no effect when no in debug mode. Default value is true for backwards compatibility.

Returns:
whether to resume the VM on startup
Since:
3.0
