Hello,
Does Eclipse version 3 still employ the link file structure to bring in
features/plugins from third parties? I'm testing out the M7 driver, and
can't seem to get the link file to work. Please assist.
Thanks.
Terry

Works for me. I have:
- links folder in my eclipse root directory
- a file called .link which contains (e.g.) path=C:/eclipse/customPlugins
- in that folder you must have the following structure:
C:/eclipse/customPlugins/eclipse/plugins/<here goe the plug-ins>
C:/eclipse/customPlugins/eclipse/features/<here goe the plug-ins>

I am using eclipse:
Tue, 20 Apr 2004 -- 13:00 (-0400)
Version: 3.0.0
Build id: 200404201300
on a Windows XP machine. My eclipse install directory is:
C:\Softwares\eclipse. Currently I have all the 3rd party features and
plugins installed in c:\Softwares\eclipse\features and
c:\Softwares\eclipse\plugins. I am trying to follow Daniel's
instructions, but not much luck. I would ultimately like to have my 3rd
party features and plugins in a separate directory (outside of my
eclipse install for eg: C:\Softwares\eclipseThirdParty\) so as to make
it easier to update eclipse versions. Where should the .link file live?
what are its contents?
I would really appreciate any help.
