pluginPath is a File.pathSeparator (';' or ':') separated list of paths. |
This, together with buildDirectory forms a list of paths, where we
consider plugins found like this:
1) if <path>\plugins exists, then <path>\plugins\* are plugins
2) else if <path>\META-INF\MANIFEST.MF, or <path>\plugin.xml or
<path>\fragment.xml exit, then <path> is a plugin.
3) else if <path> is a folder, then <path>\* are plugins
4) else if <path> is a file ending in .jar, it is a plugin.
There is similar logic for features.
In your case, you want case (3), set pluginPath=plugins_test and
plugins_test/* will be found. This is comparable to setting pluginPath
to point to a workspace folder.
