#1 Deprecated constructions in WikiEditorPlugin

Stas Fomin

I download version 1.1.5 of Plog4u, but this version
failed to work both with global and local MediaWiki sites.
("HTTP Method failed").
I start to debug the plugin, but I discovered, that my
Eclipse 3.0.1. (with org.eclipse.osgi_3.0.1) ignores
WikiEditorPlugin with deprecated constructor
public WikiEditorPlugin(IPluginDescriptor descriptor) {
(constructor not called during plugin activation, and all
other plugin actions unavailable - classes not found)

When I redefine constructor as
public WikiPlugin() {
then the constructor is called, but many other problems
appear - some exceptions in deprecated calls
IPluginDescriptor pluginDescriptor =

Then I try to fix all deprecated calls, I encounter that
the line in constructor
manager = ConfigurationManager.getInstance();
uses Plugin.bundle, which now initialized only in start()

So I stop my attempts and wrote this bug (I am
completely new in Eclipse and Eclipse plugins writing).

Please, make the plugin code debugeable under Eclipse

Sincerely, Stas Fomin.

    I'm not sure if I understand all of your steps above.
    Do you have a public MediaWiki installation, which I can test.
    Please EMail directly to axelclk [at] gmail [dot] com, so
    that we can solve you problems.

    (BTW: The wiki plugin depends on the
    net.sourceforge.phpeclipse.webbrowser; did you install this
    plugin in your test environment?)
