I am migrating some plugins that were previously hosted in the IEHS
standalone Eclipse help system to a Eclipse 3.4 Help system WAR
deployment. I set the eclipse.product property in config.ini to the plugin
that contains my plugin_customization.ini
(eclipse.product=com.emc.ic.help), but the customizations are not picked
up. They worked fine in the IEHS deployment. Here is the
plugin_customization file:

org.eclipse.help.base/banner=/com.emc.ic.help/banner.htm
org.eclipse.help.base/banner_height=110
org.eclipse.help.base/windowTitlePrefix=false
org.eclipse.help.base/linksView=false
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/com.emc.ic.help/using_syste m/about_the_system.html
org.eclipse.help/baseTOCS=/com.emc.ic.help/toc.xml

So, I went ahead and modified preferences.ini in org.eclipse.help.base to
get the banner to show up. That worked fine, but I assume this isn't
ideal. So I went to go do the same thing in the org.eclipse.help plugin to
get my plugins to be ordered, and even when modifying the preferences.ini
inside that plugin, I can't get my books to be ordered correctly.

Also, I clear my Tomcat cache every time I make a change. Any ideas? The
documentation on the WAR deployment is very sparse.

Nevermind, i found the answer to this in an older thread. You have to
include the plugin ID and extension ID for the eclipse.product property.
The docs only mention that you need plugin ID I believe...
