Hi. Installed the utility but it does not show anything on the menu (and neither under Preferences/General/Workspace I see anything related to the plugin setting)
I am running eclipse 4.2.1 on Mac OS X 10.8.2 ...

I was using the Workspace Doc Badge extension and though it could collide with somehow, uninstalled it and reinstall the Launcher but nothing new happened... Am I doing something wrong?
thanks!

Which Eclipse distribution are you using? You should find the "Open Workspace..." menu item in the "File" menu. If it's not there it is probably due to some kind of bug. Do you find something in the error log?

You will most likely get a conflict with the Workspace Doc Badge extension as both will try to set the badge of the icon.

No it should work on OS X. Are you using the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers"? Uninstalling DocBadge may help. I'll see if I can add some debug code that may help locating the problem.

:-D No, I did not think that! Mountain Lion should be good. I'm using it myself. Actually you have the same set-up as me with Eclipse 4.2.1 and OS X 10.8.2. However we do have a different Eclipse configuration, but I cannot see why that would matter. Any conflicting bundles should be handled by p2 when installing.

I don't have the time to dig deep right now but if you want to give it a try, you could just check out the code in a fresh workspace, use your current configuration as the target platform and launch a new Eclipse instance for debugging. That should reveal any issues.

Well... A clean "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" with the plug-in installed worked OK. Adding CDT and PTP still looks fine. Even adding the Badge plug-in leaves the menu in place so I'm kind of lost when it comes to reproducing your environment.

Ah, thank you for the effort! Reproducible bugs are the best ones :+1: I'll have a proper look.

I believe I found something. It appears that org.eclipse.core.expressions 3.4.400 is for some reason missing from your installation http://marketplace.eclipse.org/node/468674.

Yes, I'm surprised that it's not there for those that attempted to install it - as the log show. Anyway I've tested with the configuration that you've described and I'm unable to reproduce. Are you certain that it has been installed properly? It should be in About > Installation Details.

Are you by any chance using Java 1.6? The bundles require 1.7 and by experience I know they can silently fail when the runtime version does not match the requirements.

No problem :-) I have a fix ready, there is no reason why the bundles should require 1.7.

Hi,

I see the same issue.

If have Juno JEE SR1 (a fresh install) with Subclipse, Groovy and Grails tools, Apache Directory Studio, Mylyn, Jenkins and the OSX Launcher.

It used to work with the Juno installation, but since my latest reinstall (from the Marketplace), I don't see neither badge nor menu entry.

As of yesterday, Eclipse is running on JDK 7u9, I'm running Mountain Lion.

If have two plugins, but strangely no feature:

wschell [~/dev/tools/eclipse-jee-juno-sr1]> find . -name "no.res*"
./plugins/no.resheim.eclipse.utils.launcher.core_1.1.0.201210091844.jar
./plugins/no.resheim.eclipse.utils.launcher.macosx_1.1.0.201210091844.jar

Any hints?

Thanks for a cool plugin, I used it all the time to switch between multiple workspaces!

Thanks! I'll make available a new build later today that I believe will fix these issues.

Torkild U. Resheim

I've put a new (beta) p2 repository at http://update.resheim.no/eclipse-utilities_beta/

It looks fine to me, but it would be great if you could verify that it behaves better now.

Wolfgang Schell

Yes! After updating from the beta update site, I see menu and badge show up again. Thank you very much!

Torkild U. Resheim

Great! I'm releasing this new version now.
