Call plugin in batch mode

Hi All,

 

Is it possible, and if so how, to make sure a plugin runs while knime is executing in batch mode?

 

Thanks,

Eclipse only loads plug-ins that are actually needed. So you have to make sure that the workflow somehow accesses a class in the plug-in. What exactly are you trying to achieve?

I dont know if this is what Kyle is seeing, but we have had problems with batch execution where a renderer was not loaded because it's plugin wasnt loaded.  To get round this, we just added a node somewhere in the workflow (not neccessarily connected to anything, but configured so it doesnt fail) to force the plugin to load

The renderer issue was already addressed in 2.9, there is now an extension point for registering renderers that works with explicitly activcating the corresponding plug-in. But not all vendors have adapted their renderers to the new API yet.
