How do I force Eclipse to download entire bundle(s) my plug-in depends on? [message #502240] Mon, 07 December 2009 11:43 Go to next message

Hi,

My plug-in depends on the entire dtp-sdk_1.7.0, wtp-R-3.0.5-20090521045405, etc.
In eclipse 3.5 (bare sdk and no other plug-in / bundle installed) while installing my plug-in
I checked : "contact all update sites during install to find required software".
The installation worked fine but I noticed the download & installation lasted only for a few seconds.
Later I discovered eclipse didn't download entire bundle(s) but just the specific jars of each of these bundles.

For all the advanced features of plug-in to work user's Eclipse installation should have the entire plug-ins installed.
I want Eclipse, during the installation of my plug-in, to download the entire dtp / wtp bundle(s) along with my plug-in.

How can I tell Eclipse to do this?

Thanks.

You either have to select all of the SDKs you want (DTP, WTP) in the install dialog, or your SDK feature (used to install your plugins) has to require those other SDK features.

If your feature only includes your plugins (and they depend on other plugins), then only those other plugins will get installed, not there source or their umbrella features.
