Launch Shortcuts

Identifier:
org.eclipse.pde.ui.launchShortcuts

Since:
3.3

Description:

This extension point is used to register a launching shortcut in a PDE editor. Launch shortcuts appear in the Testing section on the Overview page of the plug-in manifest editor. This allows clients to display in the editor shortcuts for their custom launch configurations or provide a shorcut to a profile mode for the existing Eclipse Application and OSGi Framework launch configurations.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( shortcut+)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>


<!ELEMENT shortcut EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST shortcut

id    CDATA #REQUIRED

label CDATA #REQUIRED

mode  (run|debug|profile)

osgi  (true | false)

>

  • id - the id of the corresponding org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchShortcuts extension which should be launched when the link is clicked.
  • label - human-readable label to be displayed in the editor.
  • mode - the mode in which to launch the shortcut. Permitted values are run, debug and profile.
  • osgi - If set to true, the link is displayed only if the plug-in manifest editor's presentation is set to show OSGi-related sections only, ie. when the Extensions and Extension Points pages are absent. If not specified, the value is assumed to be false.

Examples:

The following is an example of the extension point:


   <extension
         point=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.launchShortcuts"
>
      <shortcut
            id=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.runtimeWorkbenchShortcut"

            label=
"Launch an Eclipse Runtime"
 
            mode=
"run"

            osgi=
"false"
/>
   </extension>

Supplied Implementation:

PDE supplies shortcut extensions to launch Eclipse applications and OSGi frameworks.
