How to deploy a plugin such that it can be imported again? [message #601381] Wed, 09 September 2009 04:51

Hi,

I have a plugin which I would like to deploy via an update site and which can be imported again (Eclipse 3.5).
The structure of the plugin is as follows:

META-INF\
src\
tests\
..classpath
..project

A feature project contains this plugin and an update site project builts an update site as expected (containing the feature and the plugin as jar files).
Then I can install the plugin in another Eclipse and in the Plugin-view I can see it.

What I would like to do now is to right-click my plugin in the plugin-view -> Import As -> Source Project.
However, the imported project looks different from the one in my original workspace:

META-INF\
tests\
..classpath
..project
<plugin-name>_1.0.0.jar

The jar seems to be the same as the one in the update site.
Inside the jar, I have exactly the expected contents from my workspace:

META-INF\
src\
tests\
..classpath
..project

My question is now, how do I restore the original project again from the installed plugin?
-> I thought it would be Import as source project, but apparently it isn't.
-> I had that working with Eclipse 3.2 (or 3.3, I can't remember). Did I miss something here?


Any help appreciated!
Patrick
