PDE comes with a new feature in Eclipse 3.6 Helios - the bundle root (the folder that contains the META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file) of a plug-in project can be specified to be any location under the project's root folder. Until then the bundle root location was always equal to the project's root folder. |
This setting is persisted in the <project-root>/.settings/org.eclipse.pde.core.prefs file. The preference key is BUNDLE_ROOT_PATH. Here is an example of its content:

But, if I create such plugin (with bundle root different than the project's root), I can no longer build it with Maven/Tycho. My pom.xml is still in the project's root. I get the following message:
[WARNING] Exception reading bundle manifest: Could not find a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF, plugin.xml or a fragment.xml in ... [cut off]
[ERROR] Internal error: java.lang.NullPointerException -> [Help 1]
This is because META-INF/MANIFEST.MF is no longer under the project's root, but under <project-root>/<bundle-root>/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF.
Is there any configuration for the tycho plugin that I can use for specifying the bundle root of a plugin project?
