How to export plugin as directory instead of zip using PDE headless [message #604532] Tue, 09 February 2010 10:07 Go to next message

I need to export one of the bundles as a directory in the similar manner that org.eclipse.platform is deployed in the SDK platform (and probably also on the other places). I have spent few hours googling but no result :(
Can anybody please give me some advise what to add into the or other files to accomplish this goal?

P.S.: I am trying to override bug described here 234#msg_510234If while this happens only in one plugin (the biggest one)

Thanks in advanced

There are several way of achieving it:
If you have a feature, you can check the "Unpack the plugin archive" for your bundle in the feature editor, where you can set the version and size for your bundle. This will simply add an unpack=true attribute to your plugin in the feature.xml
OR you can set the Eclipse-BundleShape to dir in your plugin's MANIFEST.MF. See shape/

Note that if you intend to add your plugin to a RCP that use a plugin-based definitions or to distribute it independently of a feature, you'll have to use the "Eclipse-BundleShape: dir", since you won't have a feature to rely on.
