Profiling Eclipse Rich Client Platform plug-ins
Rational Application Developer supports profiling Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) plug-ins. You can perform this profiling through the Eclipse Application option in the Profiling Configurations dialog box. There is an option to profile a new Eclipse instance using the plug-ins that are under development in the workbench. When you profile Eclipse plug-ins, it is especially wise to use a filter set that limits profile data directly to the packages that relate to your particular plug-in. As with other launch configurations, the profiling launch UI is built on the existing launch UI, which means that the workbench maintains a consistent profiling UI across varied application types. Profiling a plug-in is as easy as profiling a local Java application or other launch type.
