Eclipse Development – In which plugin do I find this class?

A common question for Eclipse Plugin or Eclipse RCP developer is in which plugin a certain class is included.

A very easy way for finding this information is the Open Type Dialog (Hotkey Ctrl + Shift +T). Just look in the right bottom corner.

Thanks for Ralf Ebert for reminding me that this is a common problem.

    Thanks for this nice hint!

    Do you know if there is also a simple way to answer the question:

    In which feature do I find this plug-in?

    Especially when working with target definitions I ask myself this question many times.

    A similar question:
