Launching Red Workspace and Verifying Plug-ins

After you set up your target platform and run configuration, verify that you can run Sabre Red 360 in development mode and run your plug-in in Sabre Red 360. A plug-in must have a UI contribution in order to see it in Sabre Red 360. If the plug-in is a background process, you can add a GUI to capture data or provide feedback.

This topic shows how to do the following:

For the complete procedure to set up a run configuration, see Getting Started with Red Apps.

Adding Plug-ins to a Run Configuration

On the Eclipse workbench main menu, choose Run Configurations. Open the Plug-ins tab. In the Workspace group, select the plug-ins that you want to launch in Sabre Red 360.

By default, Eclipse automatically adds newly imported plug-ins to your run configuration, however, verify this setting on the Plug-ins tab.

  1. To add new plug-ins to your launch configuration automatically, select Add New Workspace Plug-ins to This Launch Configuration Automatically.

        If you do not select this option, you must add new plug-ins manually.

  1. Click Validate Plug-ins, and then click Run to launch Sabre Red 360 in development mode.

If you receive errors when you validate plug-ins, dismiss the dialog and then click Add Required Plug-ins. Click Apply.

  1. Log in with your Sabre CERT login credentials.

  2. Run your plug-in. If your project has GUI elements, such as an editor or a menu entry, you should see those UI elements in Sabre Red 360.

If you receive login errors, consult the Red App Developer FAQs to troubleshoot login credentials.
