Hello Pavel:

Well, the CSS Core/EPICS section of the preference GUI
is provided by the plugin org.csstudio.platform.libs.epics.ui.
So you need to check if it's included in your product.

You describe that it's supposed to be included because
you use some ...core.feature which in turn includes the
platform.libs.epics.ui.
To be 100% sure, check that it's really loaded by the product:
Run the product, see menu Help, About, Installation Details, Plug-Ins.

If that's the case, the next thing to check:
When you look at the plugin.xml of org.csstudio.platform.libs.epics.ui,
you'll see that it tries to provide the "EPICS" settings under
the category="org.csstudio.platform.ui.css.platform".

That preference category is defined by the plugin
org.csstudio.ui.preferences, so now you need to check if it

is indeed included in your product.
As you describe, it should be because of the core.feature that you
use. But check in Help, About, ... if it really is.

If some of these plugins should be included but don't show
up in the running product, check their dependencies.

If all fails, go back to the original product from which you
started, like KEK 3.0.1: When you run that, does it still
include the EPICS preference page, or is something fundamentally
wrong?

Thanks,
-Kay

Kay!

My CSS product is based upon the KEK 3.0.1. It has 3 features -
org.csstudio.kek.eclipse.feature, org.csstudio.kek.core.feature and
org.csstudio.kek.applications.feature. I have added alarms and archiving
to the applications feature. This epics prefs menu resides in the core
feature - org.csstudio.platform.libs.epics.ui, org.csstudio.ui.preferences
and org.csstudio.ui.help. So these three are in there already, nothing to
change. Still the problem exists.

Hello Pavel:

Sounds like you are finding your way around fine so far!

The "EPICS" preference GUI and some associated online help is provided by
the plugin
org.csstudio.platform.libs.ui, so you need to include that.
To get the 'anchor' points that it uses you may also need to include
org.csstudio.ui.preferences and org.csstudio.ui.help.

Subject: [CSS] 'Epics' menu in Preferences disappeared!!!

Hello,


I was creating my own CSS application in Eclipse RCP, added some features
- Alarms (Alarm Engine, Alarm Config Tool, Annunciator, JMS2RDB), dummy
Auth&authorization and the Archiving system (Archive Engine, Archive
Config Tool). Exported to a complete CSS application. Everything works
absolutely fine, but the 'Epics' menu in Edit->Preferences->CSS core has
disappeared! Of course, I can use the -pluginCustomization ini file, which
i do in any case. Just thought it doesn't look nice since it's not in the
Prefs anymore.

Any suggestions?
