Your target platform contains all the plugins you need to compile against at development time. The product definition has to include ALL the plugins that a self-contained, deployed application will need at runtime. These plugins will include:
a) your own plugins particular to your app
b) Core eclipse plugins required for all Eclipse RCP apps (org.eclipse.rcp feature)
c) Other eclipse /3rd party plugins
So, if you have a single feature, all those plugins need to be included in that feature definition, and that single feature added to the prduct definition.
Possibly you may find it better to have 2 features - 1 'core' feature containing all basic Eclipse plugins, and 1 'application' feature which would contain your own plugins. Your product would then contain those 2 features. This will make it easier to bundle and deploy updates to your software if you use the update mechanism.
Hope this helps
