We have a nightly build that:
- Builds our feature and plug-ins
- Extracts an Eclipse Helios zip file (as obtained from http://eclipse.org/downloads)
- Copies our feature and plug-ins to the eclipse/plugins and eclipse/features directory
- Rezips Eclipse up for distribution
We've been using this for a while internally and it works great - our plug-in is there and initializes the 1st time Eclipse is run.
However, we just tried installing it into c:\Program Files\... for the first time, and ran into the read-only issues that arise in Windows Vista/7/etc (I believe they call it "Virtual Store"). Basically, Eclipse doesn't find our feature/plug-in like it usually does.
I can see that Eclipse recognized its configuration directory was read-only, and it creates c:\Users\<user>\.eclipse\... and puts some stuff in there. But it has absolutely no reaction to our prepackaged feature and plug-ins.
Can anyone recommend a better way for us to add our feature/plug-ins to an Eclipse zip file that will be deployed to c:\Program Files?
