I guess you are using a -feature based- product, so you don't have a
button "add required plugins" to easily compute the required dependencies..
I have the same kind of project and it's a nightmare to know the needed
dependencies and add them manually ! But I have a trick I found after
hours of playing with those dependencies / build..
What I do is
* Open the product file
* Click on "Launch an eclipse application" (this will create a launch
configuration synchronized with your product definition)
* Edit this launch configuration and check "validate plugins prior to
* Now every time you update one of your features, just click on "Launch
an eclipse application" again and if you have unmet dependencies eclipse
will display them.
You can now fix all the needed dependencies. Then if your project run
fine in eclipse, the build should work too.
