Can't get rootfiles specification to work in plug-in based product [message #717684] Mon, 22 August 2011 04:32

I am trying to get a file automatically included in my plug-in based product's exported folder but it isn't working. I am using Eclipse 3.6.2.

I am trying to follow the advice from http://help.eclipse.org/helios/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.pde.doc.user/tasks/pde_rootfiles.htm

This is what I now have:

1. My existing build.properties file now has the extra line:

generatedBuildProperties = ${buildDirectory}/root.properties

2. A new file called root.properties in the same directory as in (1) with contents:

root=absolute:file:${buildDirectory}/header.html

I am doing this just to test this functionality but even with this simple configuration no header.html file appears in the exported product folder even though it exists in the same folder as in (1). I originally tried to use this to copy the JRE folder in but I thought I would just get a trivial example working first that just copies a single file but even this does not work.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

-sbs
