  • Plugin-Spy: A great way to find out anything about my current plugin. This should be especially useful if you are looking into a RCP-App that you haven't developed or you just don't remember everything.

  • BundleClassloader.loadClass(): A great debug-point to figure out Classloader-problems

  • Core-Tools: Small utilities for Plugin-Development:
