Hi Joachim
Thanks for the info.

I did try the first of the options that you suggest, but probably got
the syntax wrong.
Anyway, I'll be sure to use one of these.

Thanks for your help

Hi Andrew,

the problem is that when you pass a *string* to rpc, this is currently
not parsed in the same module context in which the goal gets called.
This could be considered a bug, so we'll fix it.

For the time being, use either a string in canonical syntax, i.e.

	eclipse.rpc("&::(A, [a,b])");

or use the Java-Eclipse type mapping, i.e. pass a CompoundTerm:

	Collection abList = new LinkedList();
	abList.add(new Atom("a"));
	abList.add(new Atom("b"));
	eclipse.rpc(new CompoundTermImpl("&::", null, abList);

Best regards,
