    • Method Detail

      • earlyStartup

        void earlyStartup()
        Will be called in a separate thread after the workbench initializes.

        Note that most workbench methods must be called in the UI thread since they may access SWT. For example, to obtain the current workbench window, use:

         IWorkbench workbench = PlatformUI.getWorkbench();
         workbench.getDisplay().asyncExec(new Runnable() {
           public void run() {
             IWorkbenchWindow window = workbench.getActiveWorkbenchWindow();
             if (window != null) {
               // do something
