This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)


Eclipse Plug-in Development

This morning when I opened my Eclipse workspace, one of my RCP projects had problems with its build paths.  On the 'libraries' property page, the entry that is normally called 'Plug-in Dependencies' was labelled 'org.eclipse.pde.core.requiredPlugins (unbound)' and the container was empty.  After much experimenting, I discovered I could fix the problem by closing and re-opening the project, followed by a 'clean'.

My workbench showed errors on start-up:

although as far as I can remember the previous session did exit normally.
