Hello,

I would like to merge two or more (preconfigured) Eclipse packages.
The main problem for me is to find all the components and dependencies.

Let's start with an example: (just let's use first the win32 builds)

I would "merge" the prebuild "Eclipse Classic 4.2" available at
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-classic-42/junor

I would "merge" the prebuild " Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" available at
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-developers/junor

and the prebuild package "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers" from
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-cc-developers/junor

BUT at the end I would like to have an installation which fulfill all
environments/features and there dependencies and have an Eclipse
installation which has all the necessary features for SDK, Java, CPP.

My tests to just copy the one package over the other package doesn't
work well, because the dependencies/config files will be overwritten.

Of course all the packages/fetures should be inside the "new" merged
_COMMON_ Installation of Eclipse,
but which config-files do I have to respect and modify (merge by hand)
to have all the right configurations/features for al teh packages
of SDK, JAVA _AND_ CPP?

Think this would be the simplest way, because I only have to compare
the appropriate configuration files by hand and merge them by hand,
eliminating the duplicates and do NOT have to find out all the
dependencies/features of all prebuild packages.

Later I would like to do this for other prebuild packages, e.g.
Modeling, etc. which I would like to add, but still have only _ONE_
Installation of Eclipse.

Hope that someone can help me to solve the task as simple as
possible and any help is welcome. Thank you.

T.

Build your own eclipse distro out of the Eclipse Classic SDK.

See
http://tomsondev.bestsolution.at/2012/07/13/create-your-own-eclipse-distro-made-easy/

I'm building http://www.efxclipse.org/install.html with that.

Thank you for that tip, but that is not what I mean.
these are prebuilds for JavaFX and some Modeling or OSGi (if I see thtat
right)

But what I mean is to "merge" different _existing_ builds of the
downloadable
Eclipe-Distributions. Just to have ONE SDK which has all the features and
abilities of the "merged" distributions e.g.

"Eclipse Classic 4.2"
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-classic-42/junor

and

"Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" (not only or with FX)
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-developers/junor

and

"Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers"
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-cc-developers/junor

first. Later I would like to add other distributions and just copy all the
"dropins, plugins,
features, etc. subdirectories" and just modify the appropriate configuration
files,
which holds all the information of the Installed "Distributions" like the
"Classic SDK",
the "IDE for Java Developers", the "IDE for C/C++ Developers", etc.

But I don't know which files I have to modify and "merge".
Think to edit the right files by hand would be the best, but first I have to
know
which files are affected.

Any help is welcome.

I don't meant you should use e(fx)clipse as a distro but wanted it to
show you because it is built using the software from the first link.

The utility I linked to starts with a base eclipse SDK and packages
updatesites into it, all you need is Java & Ant and then follow
description on https://github.com/tomsontom/distrobuilder out you get a
custom distro.
