MF is to be opened with the Plugin in Manifest Editor.In that case, right clicking and selecting open with / other is helpful.Updated: May 15, 2014 Due to the latest Java security patches beginning with JRE 1.7.0_25 and higher (especially JRE 1.7.0_45), all jar files have to be updated with the codebase and permissions attributes (and also the Application-Name attribute starting with JRE 1.7.0_45 although not mandatory at this time).
For steps on how to install the patch, please review our KB article at https://pitss.com/us/2013/09/26/how-to-fix-missing-permissions-manifest-and-missing-codebase-manifest-warnings-in-oracle-forms-using-jre-1-7-0_25-or-higher/.

Problem As I have written earlier, I copy the MANIFEST.
MF, which is generated by the Maven Bundle Plugin into my eclipse PDE projects.The problem is that eclipse PDE has problems with picking up the contents of the newly created MANIFEST. Solution One solution I have found is to simply open the MANIFEST.MF in eclipse and click on one of the import‘s properties. MF can be saved and the PDE will pick up the contents of the MANIFEST. Sometimes eclipse does not recognize that the MANIFEST.MF net/ net/codejava/ net/codejava/swing/ net/codejava/swing/File Type Filter.class net/codejava/swing/JFile Picker.class net/codejava/swing/mail/ net/codejava/swing/mail/Config Utility.class net/codejava/swing/mail/Email Utility.class net/codejava/swing/mail/Email Utility.class net/codejava/swing/mail/Settings Dialog.class net/codejava/swing/mail/Swing Email Sender.class 0 Tue Dec 03 ICT 2013 META-INF/ 68 Tue Dec 03 ICT 2013 META-INF/MANIFEST.
