Custom Eclipse Release [message #557704] Wed, 08 September 2010 10:57 Go to next message

Hi everyone,

I have two plugins that I have already created. Right now I release them by publishing them to our Eclipse update site.

Ideally, though, we will be creating more plugins and would like to have the ability to make a custom version of Eclipse already preloaded with our plugins so that clients just need to download that custom version of Eclipse and then they will be good to go.

I was thinking to just download Eclipse, install the plugins, and then zip that install up again once everything is installed. Is this the best way to solve this problem or is there a formalized process of releasing a custom Eclipse version with predefined plugins?

Thanks,

Andy

You have a couple of options. You can grab an eclipse, unzip it,
install into it, and then zip it back up.

You can mirror the eclipse repo (because it's easier to generate more
than one platform if it is local), and then create the product with your
plugins (or feature) all at the same time and zip it up (this is what I
do, using the director).
