Eclipse Platform Plug-in Development Environment Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Product Launching

The Launching page customizes the native launcher of your product and the launching arguments.


The Java Runtime Environment section allows you to bundle a JRE with your product automatically.

launcher jre

The JRE will be placed in the jre directory at the root of your product.

Program Launcher

The Program Launcher section customizes the name and icon of the native launcher of the product.

Launcher Exe

To customize the name of the launcher, just enter the name in the Launcher Name field. If left unspecifed, the name will default to eclipse.

Customizing the launcher icon varies per platform. The product editor indicates the platform requirements, and flags warnings at the top of the page if the supplied icons do not match the size or depth requirements.

Launching Arguments

To launch an Eclipse product with default program and VM arguments, these arguments are stored in a file named <launcher_name>.ini at the root of the product. PDE creates this file with its content based on the values entered in the Launching Arguments section.
