Arggg...Spoke too soon. Ok, created the *.zip with all stuff inside it,
artifacts.jar/content.jar/etc., but still can't install the plugins via
the *.zip file. Got the same original errors when I do a "Test
Connection" on the site, Eclipse shows the below text in the pop-up dialog.
"No repository found at "jar:file:/home/me/myfile.zip!/.
org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.core.ProvisionEx ception "
Why does the location of the site have the "!/" at the end of path?
