Hi,

I've developed a plug in, and created a feature and an update site projects inside eclipse to publish it.
What i am looking for, is a way to automate the process of creating my update site during our automatic build process through a command line rather that manually throught the UI of the update site project.

It seems to me that large projects must use an automated process, and that it should be quite straightforward, but didn't find any simple reference on how to do it in the web.

Thank a lot in advance!
Michal.

Creating update site is very similar to product build process. You need only in build.properties file enable options:
topLevelElementType = feature
topLevelElementId = <your_feature_id>

and disable 'product' variable. And after whole process copy your site.xml file to generated zip or folder.

Look at this site http://help.eclipse.org/galileo/topic/org.eclipse.pde.doc.us er/tasks/pde_product_build.htm

Main elements are described but with more advanced topics you must experiment:) If you will have more questions, let me know:)
