Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

Interface IStartup

public interface IStartup

Plug-ins that register a startup extension will be activated after the Workbench initializes and have an opportunity to run code that can't be implemented using the normal contribution mechanisms.


Method Summary
 void earlyStartup ()
          Will be called in a separate thread after the workbench initializes.

Method Detail


void earlyStartup()
Will be called in a separate thread after the workbench initializes.

Note that most workbench methods must be called in the UI thread since they may access SWT. For example, to obtain the current workbench window, use:

 final IWorkbench workbench = PlatformUI.getWorkbench();
 workbench.getDisplay().asyncExec(new Runnable() {
   public void run() {
     IWorkbenchWindow window = workbench.getActiveWorkbenchWindow();
     if (window != null) {
       // do something
