The following code snippet demonstrates how to open browser editor programmatically:

LauncherParams parameters = new LauncherParams.LauncherParamsBuilder(String editorId, String editorName, String pluginId)
                                .persist(Boolean value)
                                .url(String url)
                                .insertJavaScript(String jsString)
                                .additionalParams(Map <String, String> additionalParams)

new WorkbenchUtils().openBrowserEditor(String commandId, LauncherParams parameters);

LauncherParams is a utility class that will help in setting up the parameters required for opening the editor.

The required parameters are:

  • EditorId - String value, id of the editor

  • EditorName - String value, name of the editor

  • pluginId - String value, plugin id

  • Url - String value, url to load in the editor

The optional parameters are:

  • PersistInd - Boolean value, indicator to maintain the persistency of the editor

  • JsString - String value, javascript code to be executed on the editor opened

  • AdditionalParams - Map <String, String>, to send any additional key value pair data

You still need to register your editor to the applicable editor handler in plugin.xml. Example shown below:
<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.commands">
       name="Open Webkit Editor Test">
