Feature-based PDE-build and the unpack flag [message #643224] Mon, 06 December 2010 07:09 Go to next message

We have two working pde builds: We have (1) a product-based PDE build
and we have (2) a simpler feature-based PDE-Build which produces just
"add-on" plugins that can optionally be installed to the RCP application
produced from the first PDE build.

The first PDE-build correctly honors the "unpack" attributes of the
"plugin" elements of the feature.xml. This is fine and as expected.

*But* the plugins produced from the feature-based build ignore the
"unpack" attribute values and are *always* unpacked.

How can I realize that the feature-based build also honors the "unpack"
attribute values of its "plugin" elements?

Thanks & Greetings from Bremen,

Daniel Krügler

Hi Daniel,

I had a look in my headless build and found my build.properties the
following:

runpackager = true

In case you don't use a build.properties file I suppose yould could also
directly set that as a property in your ant target.

HTH and greets from Bochum

Tom

Actually, its

runPackager = true (notice that Capital P)

sorry for that.

Thanks very much for your help, Tom - I will try that out immediately!

I checked our build.properties file and found that we have this flag
already set to true :-(

I understand you, that in your feature-based RCP build (*not* a product
build!), the unpacked flag is correctly honored?

Sorry, no, its a product build which is based on features, but I never
tried building the features alone, so I can't tell you if the same
happens here, too. I just thought it was worth a shot.

The "unpack" attributes of the
"plugin" elements of the feature.xml is used during install time to install bundles as folders. It has no effect at build time.

Thanks, this helps. But how can we control the packing and unpacking of
plugins build in a feature-based PDE build? Let me emphasize that these
are plugins which completely rely on the dot class path, thus they don't
provide a "named" library.

Thanks & Greetings from Bremen,
