Hi Guys,

Thanks for all your help. I have to write a report about Eclipse
Plugin Developement and i need your help since i have googled but found no
results.

In the report i have to write the "restrictions and problems" that Eclipse
impose on plugin development. So i am asking you guys to help me or show
me a pointer where i can find such information.

Thank you all.


Eddy.

One thing that really is a restriction is the folder structure pde
forces you into. Because of some magic when starting eclipse inside
itself pde requires resource folders to be in the source path and
META-INF/ and plugin.xml to reside in the root (although OSGi only wants
that structure in your _binary distribution_).
That makes developing with tools that impose a different structure (e.g.
maven) a PITA.
