I have two installations of eclipse-3.4.2. One for development of our
plug-in and another for testing the same.
This is what happens :
I install our plug-in on eclipse-3.4.2. And after a couple of quick tests
I uninstall it.
Then I do some changes to the plug-in and build fresh plug-in update site
by following this method :
I install the plug-in again on the test-eclipse-installation and test out
the features. But I don't find the latest changes in the plug-in. I don't
even see the simple println statements.
Also, when I check the creation date of plug-in jar it clearly tells me
that the jar present in eclipse/plugins is old one.
How do I solve this problem?

different plugin version, it should download every plugin installed at
each update command (if you have automatic updates, this can be really
If there is another way, I'm very intereasted too, since everytime I put
on my update site a new version, and there is a little bug (like a
NullPointer...), I dislike very much to increment version number just to
