Another small change is the remote debug options. I often write code, deploy it to the runtime through an update site (once) then copy the plugins over from then on. This way I can remote debug my Java plugins using the following command:
C:notesframeworkrcprcplauncher.exe -config notes -debug -clean -console -vmargs -Xdbg:transport=dt_socket,suspend=n,server=y,address=8020 -Xss512k
You can also use the Expeditor toolkit to setup a workspace and launch Notes directly from your Eclipse IDE.
