 When using the ''​Import-Package''​ statement and if the plug-in shares some common package with another plug-in, Eclipse gets confused and claims that other plug-in cannot use classes in this package, even if it is exported by all the plug-ins involved. Therefore, it is important to have different packages, which can of defeat the purpose of having plug-in in the first place. It is true, though, that ''​Import-Package''​ statement, by instructing Eclipse to by-pass its class-loading mechanism, disturb this mechanism. When using the ''​Import-Package''​ statement and if the plug-in shares some common package with another plug-in, Eclipse gets confused and claims that other plug-in cannot use classes in this package, even if it is exported by all the plug-ins involved.

 +The ''​config.ini''​ file contains, among other things, the locations of the plug-ins (actually, their JAR files or folders) required by an Eclipse application. If one of more plug-ins are missing, i.e., there is a discrepancy between the ''​config.ini''​ file and the folder containing the plug-ins JARs and folders, then Eclipse will throw an error and the "​configuration area" will contain a log file detailing the missing plug-ins.
