CTRL+3 cbi (Copy Build Id)

    Hi Vogel, thank you for your great web with Rich Editorial Content, it is very helpful for me.
    But I met a difficulty in obfuscate my rcp project these days and I googled but no good ideas. I use Obfuscate4e with proguard 4.3 or 4.4. errors always arose. I am puzzled by the exception. would you please give me a help or write a tutorial on your web? The exception log in my rcp is as below:
