Using RTC 4.0.3 Java API I am trying to load an existing workspace to download content from the stream. I am basing my code on the sample here:

My code fails at the following line with an IllegalStateException "Workspace is closed".

File workspaceRoot = ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot().getLocation().toFile();

I don't see documentation available for the ResourcesPlugin class. Is there a way to get a File workspace root object from a IWorkspaceConnection object?

A different build of the source from the Forum link above indicates that the DojoObject class is required. Can anyone point me to where I might be able to dowload the .jar for

That code is Eclipse API and is out of scope for RTC API.

However, the Javadoc for ResourcesPlugin#getWorkspace() says the workspace is not accessible after the resources plug-in has shutdown.
