  • id - specifies a unique identifier for this launch group.

  • category - specifies the category of launch configurations in this group. When unspecified, the category is null.
  • label - specifies a translatable label used to render this group.
  • image - specifies a plug-in relative path to an image used to render this group in trees, lists, tabs, etc.
  • bannerImage - specifies a plug-in relative path to an image used to render this group in a wizard or dialog banner area.
  • public - specifies whether this launch group is public and should be have a visible launch history tab in the debug preferences. The implied value is true, when not specified.
  • title - title to display in the launch wizard when this launch group is opened - for example "Select or configure an application to debug" (since 3.1)

Examples:
The following is an example of a launch group extension point:


 <extension point=
"org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchGroups"
>
  <launchGroup
     id=
"com.example.ExampleLaunchGroupId"

     mode=
"run"

     label=
"Run"

     image=
"icons\run.gif"

     bannerImage=
"icons\runBanner.gif"
>
  </launchGroup>
 </extension>

In the above example, the launch group will consist of all launch configurations with no category that support run mode.
