Hey, Wim, thanks.|
Yes, using Bundle.uninstall() was my first try as well. I did even better, I've added a command in my application to invoke Bundle.uinstall, so I witnessed disapearing another menu item (each menu item is different plugin). Very funny!
In this approach, however, the plugin would be avaliable again after application restart. In your idea, I don't have this problem. I think the solution would be to combine this two methods:
- user chooses which features to uninstall
- config file is being created
- upon restart, in Activator, instead of hard coded values, config file is read and appropriate plugins are uninstalled.
What I would be really happy with, is permanent removal of said plugin. To achieve this, I'm afraid I need to programmaticaly do the following:
- remove the plugin file
- edit config.ini
- edit artifacts.xml
A lot of work, and I'm not sure if this are the only locations where plugin information is maintained by standalone RCP application. (I was recieving error when I fiddled with aforementioned files)
Alternatively, since 3.5 you can use p2 update service. I managed to do that using the following tutorial:
I hope my analysis helps other people dealing with similar task. What community thinks of my ideas?
