 Hi All 
I am performing RTC exension workshop in following link

In the workshop on page number 58 1.7 Test the RTC eclipse client launch
When I am performing the step 31 Launch the RTC Eclipse client under debug, when I click on debug it gives me below error

!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.launcher 4 0 2015-07-06 15:39:12.625
!MESSAGE Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor.EclipseStarter

at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.invokeFramework(
at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.basicRun(
at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.main(

I am not getting reason of this and How do I solve it.

What debug configuration are you using? Can you post two screen shots similar to the one at step 31? One for the "Bundles" tab and the other "Main" tab. You may have to upload the screen shots somewhere else as you don't have enough reputation to post images on this forum yet. If you can't post the screen shots anywhere, try to explain what you see in words.

It is not clear what version of RTC/Eclipse you are testing with. The error may suggest it could be installation issue or permissions related issue. Regarding permissions, check if this technote helps:

Thanks Donald and Don for your reply
I figured out the problem
When we import three plugins to configure jetty one from rtc-sdk and two from server we also import one feature "" from eclipse
(refer page number 43 in the RTC extension workshop)
This feature let you open another instance of eclipse.
Previously I was performing this workshop in that I installed RTC eclipse client through Installation manager I was facing lot of issues.
Then I installed RTC client through .zip file after that everything worked smooth.

If you do this, you can not run client SDK based extensions.
