Hello,

I am trying to setup an automated PDE build for a large RCP project, but I
am getting a lot of issues.

I have tried a smaller application with less dependencies and it worked
fine.

The main areas I am having issues with are:
1- Setting correct feature definitions for the product (I will post about
this separately) but the question here. Is it required to have my product
depends on featurs, or can it work with plugins? (I don't need p2 update)

2- Target Platform dependency
I have setup my target platform in separate directories: 1 folder contains
eclipse sdk, another contains delta-pack, another one contains CDT, other
contains other plugins, ...
I don't understand what does the baseLocation property mean in that case?
it is currently pointing to the eclipse sdk folder, and I am getting
errors about missing dependencies (CDT).
I tried to set the pluginPath variable to contain the directories
containing my plugins in addition to all the target platform directories,
but it doesn't seem to have an effect.

a. Do I need to "install" all the dependencies in the eclipse platform
installation? Can't I keep it in separate folders?

2. Must I copy my plugins and features into the plugins and features
directories in the build area, or can I use pluginPath to avoid that?
I thought from Andrew's post
http://aniefer.blogspot.com/2008/06/example-headless-build-f or-rcp-product.html
that pluginPath can eliminate that need.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Mohamed.


Best Regards,
Mohamed.
