Adding Plugins to own update site [message #805597] Thu, 23 February 2012 18:52 Go to next message

Hello,

could someone please point me to a direction on how to add plugins to an
own update-site or the feature the own update-site is hosting, *except*
the ones I created myself? e.g. Adding the "Android DDMS"
(com.android.ide.eclipse.ddms.feature.group) or the "Mobile Tools for
Java SDK" (org.eclipse.mtj.sdk.feature.group)
So that if one installs a self-created feature, it takes a plugin I
developed and also installs other plugins/features as mentioned above.
How can that be linked or even mirrored on the own update-site and tied
to an own feature?
When trying to add those plugins/features in Eclipse to my main-feature,
they won't appear in the list as my own plugin/feature does, although
they are installed on my local system. How can I add them to my feature
and push it to the update site? (pushing my own feature there works
quite fine already)
As I couldn't find a text which documents on how to achieve this, even a
hint to that would be appreciated.
kind regards

Martin

You can mirror the features during your build, or even mirror them into your build repo in your postBuild task. See http://pweclipse.blogspot.com/2011/06/p2-cheatsheet.html for an example using the p2 mirror ant task.
