We are moving our RCP build from a simple and well=working plugin-based product definition to a (more complex) feature-based definition, to leverage p2.
I used to define my product by adding in the plugins list all org.bonitaoft.* bundles, and then by clicking on "Add Required Plugin", and then by adding platform-specific bundle to run on Mac, Linux and Win. Everything was perfect.
Now that I use feature-based, I'd like to have 2 features: one containing all org.bonitasoft code and one containing dependencies (the minimal set of plugins to get the product working). But this is very very very (to be repeated on 3 lines) difficult to maintain compared to the magic "Add Required plugins" button. The ideal would be a button on the feature that contains our bundle, that would be "Create a feature from required plugins"., but such a thing does not exist (yet ;).
Then I wonder whether I am missing a good practice about dependency management when using features? Can someone teach me something that will make me forget my love-story "Add required plugins" button?
Thanks in advance
