|[platform-dev] Get an instance of IWorkspace outside Eclipse|
I am trying to Mavenize a 3rd party’s Eclipse plugin, so that building a jar from the plugin is no longer dependent on having the 3rd party’s specialized Eclipse installed (especially for our sysadmins who perform deployments with maven). I am fairly confident that if I could get an instance of IWorkspace, I could get the 3rd party’s code to build the jar.
Does anyone have an idea of how to open an instance of the Eclipse workspace, without Eclipse “installed” (the minimum set of eclipse jars would still be present)? The question essentially is can you open an instance of IWorkspace from a separate Java program?
Your help is greatly appreciated!
