Eclipse 3.5: Removing a jar from plugins/: equinox throws error [message #485095] Thu, 10 September 2009 10:14

I would like to remove a plugin (namely the usage data collector). In
pre-3.5 versions I simply deleted the corresponding jars and directories
from plugins/ and features/.

Obviously this doesn't work anymore, because in this case equinox
encounters an error (see the respective log entry below) and presumably
stops loading the plugins once it notices that these jars are not there,
although referred to (e.g. in artifacts.xml).

After this, eclipse starts up, but several plugins are missing. I suppose
it's those ones that would have been loaded after this one. (If I put back
the usage collector jars, these other plugins get loaded upon the next
startup as well.)

I could remove every reference to this plugin in every xml files by hand,
but I'm looking for an easier way, possibly on that could be written in a
script. Is there any?
