Hi everybody

when I start eclimd, i get the ERROR, that it failed to load my plugin.
And I couldn't find out why. I strippt it down to the minimum, and it still doesn't load
Is theire somwhere a logfile or anotherplace where I can find out, why it fails to load my plugin?

Kind Regards 
Markus Knecht

I could find out a bit more concerning the matter:
my plugins bundle does never end up in the osgi container of eclipse, as a call to ss shows.
but it is located in the plugins directory

Based on the information in: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Where_Is_My_Bundle
The problem is that the bundle is directly copied into the plugins folder and not installed with p2, which should be used sience Eclipse v3.4.

If I'm interpreting the ant build output of eclim correctly it just copies the bundle into the plugin folder.
Is theire a way to install it correctly?

You can use the eclim installer which uses p2.

Thanks for the tipp with the installer, but now I have the problem to build the installer, with my plugin in it.
If I do ant dist I get a:
 java.net.UnknownHostException: D
And if I do ant installer I get a:
 java.lang.IllegalAccessError: tried to access method org.apache.tools.ant.types.ZipFileSet.<init>(Lorg/apache/tools/ant/types/FileSet;)V from class org.formic.ant.PackageTask

So my question is what am I missing, how should I build an installer with my plugin in it, or is theire an even easier way to use the installer with my plugin instead of building it.

Ah, you are actually writing code for eclim. Well, then I wouldn't
worry about building the installer for now. I've never had an issue
with eclipse recognizing plugins copied into the plugins folder via
ant, so for now I'd suggest updating your local copy of build.xml to
deploy to the dropins folder.

Just to give you a short Update,
It was my eclipse Neon installation, that had some problems, after a fresh installation of it, 
the plugin dedection/loading worked just fine.
