Thanks a lot for your effort and for sharing this!

AFAIK there's no better solution other than running the standalone version.

Oops, thanks for pointing this out. It comes from the Maven/Eclipse 
project model differences. And me forgetting to keep the Eclipse one in 
sync :-) I've added both the Maven magic and the jar files to the 
classpath, at least this works in my environment. (r2874)

I already thought about removing this dependency (on ISharedImages), we 
don't benefit a lot from it. Added a ticket for this.

Really nice to hear that you could achieve this! Do you have any 
information regarding when the 1.2 branch of uDig will be stable? (it 
uses Eclipse 3.4)

I added a link to your mail on the wiki, so others will find it.

Again, thanks!
