I like to use the new p2 interface for my rcp application.
I can successfully export my application (product based)
but the size of the export is really huge in contrast to the export
of the application with the old update manager (old: 130 mb new: ca. 450 mb).
What i don't understand is that the plugins are available two times (in the plugins folder and also as *.jars in the repository/plugins folder).
Do i need the *.jars (plugins) in the repository folder? Is there a way to decrease the export size of an rcp application?
