Documentation for adding help to RCP still refers to requiring tomcat,
lucene, etc. What are the explicit plugins that must be in the target when
exporting an RCP?

Hi,
this recent article:
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-Add ingHelpToRCP/index.html
notes that only required plugins are org.eclipse.help.webapp and
org.eclipse.help.ui plus their dependencies.

Right. The dependencies are needed in the feature holding the plugin.
These used to include appserver, base, tomcat, some apache code, etc.

If you are starting from the RCP SDK as the target you do not have
those plugins or their dependencies so you have to copy them to your
target from the platform SDK. There does not seem to be an easy way to
find out what dependencies are missing from the target. You can go
through the plugins one by one looking at their dependencies to see
which are missing but it is a rather tedious process.

It is possible to change the target to the platform SDK, do the "Add
Required Plug-ins", save the product and then change the target back
again. That leaves your product configuration with the missing plugins
listed and marked as faulty so you can then copy them in one go. This
is less tedious but does not seem to me to be an ideal way of
addressing the issue.

Thanks. In the past, there were eight (I think) specific plugins that were
required for help to work. Now the documentation simply refers to two, but
their dependencies have multiplied like loaves and fishes. The end result
is that it is difficult to set up a separate target platform from the
development platform.
