Problem deploying plugin I wrote myself. [message #486945] Mon, 21 September 2009 09:29 Go to next message

I am using Eclipse Ganymede to write a simple plug-in.

My plug-in project uses the template: 'plug-in with sample help content'.

I test it using the "Launch an Eclipse application" in the testing section of the overview tab of the project. All Ok. It works as expected. I can see the new items in the help menu.

I then export the plug-in using the links in the export section, on the overview tab in the plug-in development perspective. This results in a jar file created for plug-in with all the files in the jar file.

However, when I try to use this plug in any other eclipse instances, I run into problems. I selecte help / software updates / available software / Add site / Archive / Select the jar and I get:

No repository found at jar:files:D:\plugins\my.plugin.help_1.0.0.jar!/

and then:

See details for more information.

I click on details an dI just get the same error message.

This makes no sense to me. Would really appreciate some help. I have tried using the -clean option makes no difference. The jar file looks ok, it's not corrupted I can open it with winzip and all ok.

Any help, greatly appreciated.

If you want to install via update-manager/p2 you need to create/export a
feature that contains your plug-in, and then an update site, that
contains that feature.

Easier to just drop the plugin in the 'dropins' folder.
