    • findLaunchConfiguration

      protected ILaunchConfiguration findLaunchConfiguration(String mode)
      Description copied from class: AbstractLaunchShortcut
      This method first tries to locate existing launch configurations that are suitable for the application or framework being launched.
      • If none are found, a new launch configuration is created and initialized
      • If one is found, it is launched automatically
      • If more than one is found, a selection dialog is presented to the user and the chosen one will be launched
      findLaunchConfiguration in class AbstractLaunchShortcut
      mode - mode of launch (run, debug or profile)
      a launch configuration to run or null if launch is canceled
    • isGoodMatch

      protected boolean isGoodMatch(ILaunchConfiguration configuration)
      Returns a boolean value indicating whether the launch configuration is a good match for the application or product to launch.
      Specified by:
      isGoodMatch in class AbstractLaunchShortcut
      configuration - the launch configuration being evaluated
      true if the launch configuration is suitable for the application or product to launch with, false otherwise.
    • initializeConfiguration

      protected void initializeConfiguration(ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy wc)
      Initializes a new Eclipse Application launch configuration with defaults based on the current selection:
      • If there is no selection or the selected project is a plug-in that does not declare an application, the default product is launched.
      • If the selected project is a plug-in that declares an application, then that application is launched.
      • If the selected project is a plug-in that declares more than one application, then the user is presented with a list of choices to choose from.
      Once an application is chosen, the plug-in is searched to see if there is a product bound to this application. If a product is found, the product is launched instead, since a product provides a richer branded experience.
      Specified by:
      initializeConfiguration in class AbstractLaunchShortcut
      wc - the launch configuration working copy to be initialize
