How to have a fragment project replace a directory of files [message #648671] Thu, 13 January 2011 16:58 Go to next message

I have a fragment project where i want to replace the html/ folder that is used for context help within a plug-in.
The fragment project contains additional information that the original plug-in does not (more extensive descriptions, for example.)

If i have an html/ directory in both the host plug-in and the fragment, only the host versions of the files are seen.
If I omit the html/ directory from host, I do see the files from the fragment plug-in.

I tried adding 'html' to the runtime classpath but this doesn't seem to make any difference.

I can find examples of how to replace files e.g. for language translation, but no information that helps me replace an entire directory of data that the plug-in uses.

Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks.
...Beth

Hi,
i dont think that you can do that with a fragment. Because fragments are concepted only to ADD classes/resources to the classpath. A possible solution could be be to move the whole directory from the host plug-in into a additional fragment. With this separation you could replace the original fragment with the new fragment in your client (target platform) in order to replace the target directory. But this is only possible if you are the owner of that host plug-in. Otherwise you have got a problem, i think.

Greetings
Adam

Yes I'm the owner of the host plug-in.
Wonder if I can replace the class that calculates where the files are located? and I can use a different dir e.g. htmlnew/
