I was wondering if there is any way or functionality, headless to verify that all the bundles/plugins/features of a given Eclipse installation are valid.
The definition of valid is:
-Contains all the files that are expected to be there.
-The files have not been tampered or modified in any matter.
-The content as a whole has a checksum that is verified against.
So for example if by some situation, a file is deleted by an antivirus or other process or mistake, running a simple command like "eclipse -verifyIntegrity" will give a very good diagnostic of corrupted features/plugins, registry and so on.
It goes in the direction of diagnostics and perhaps self-repair.
So maybe Eclipse can repair itself on that level.
Any thoughts on that?
