    [ https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAMFORGE-164?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601308#comment-12601308 ] 

Koen Aers commented on SEAMFORGE-164:

Max, I think indeed that running in the same VM will be tricky though maybe not impossible if it happens in a thread of its own with an appropriate classloader. But in addition to that there is the problem of supporting multiple Forge runtime versions that becomes way more complicated or even impossible. This would probably implicate that the release cycles of Forge and JBT would have to be aligned. We both know how easy that is ;-)

> (01:41:28 PM) Lincoln: I'd like to start Forge in JBoss Tools, but instead of using the Shell, use the PluginMetadata to build a GUI to run Plugins from the IDE itself.
> (01:41:34 PM) Lincoln: Using windows and input fields, etc.
> (01:41:45 PM) Koen Aers: hm
> (01:42:07 PM) Lincoln: So workflow like this:
> (01:42:46 PM) Lincoln: <CTRL-4> JBT pops up a window like <CTRL-3> where you can type and it will search through the list of commands that are available
> (01:42:48 PM) Lincoln: you can pick one
> (01:42:51 PM) Lincoln: when you do
> (01:43:06 PM) Lincoln: JBT generates a UI for that command, with a list of required and optional fields, based on teh plugin metadata
