RichText (EPF milestone 1.2.0.4) [message #51249] Thu, 19 June 2008 10:16 Go to next message

Hi folks,

I did some research on how to integrate the RichText-Editor in a
separate RCP application, but I still have some questions. I found only
one thread in the newsgroups and one feature request in the bug tracker,
so if I missed anything, feel free to redirect me to the right page/thread.
As far as this thread is concerned
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=209373), the RTE can now
be included separately as a standalone feature/plugin.

# Is there any tutorial on how this should be done?
I could extract the feature and he plugins from this milestone build to
deploy my own RTE plugin. This, however, invokes an issue about updating
and future maintenance.

# Is is planned to deploy EPF as a set of Eclipse features on an Update
site, so that a simple dependency could solve this problem?

# Tom Schindl writes
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=209373#c8) that the
editor now works fine with MacOS. Has anyone tested the new version on a
Mac because the code was a bit refactored since this post?


Cheerz,
Alex

If you have the RichText stand-alone feature in your dev/target
environment, you can specify it on the Included Features tab of your
product's feature.xml. That will cause the product export process to
include that feature and its plugins in your exported product.

I've asked about an update site before and was met with remarkable
silence. Perhaps opening a bug report would trigger some action on that
front...

The Stand-alone feature is specified so that it won't install or load on
OS X, so I don't think it can even be tested without hacking the feature
and/or plug manifests or XML.
