Disable transformation of product to wrapper feature during PDE build? [message #1002871] Sat, 19 January 2013 13:03 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm currently using a feature-based product configuration that consists of:
- Eclipse platform, JDT, EMF + other Eclipse features
- some 3rd party features
- my own features

According to http://help.eclipse.org/juno/topic/org.eclipse.pde.doc.user/tasks/pde_product_build.htm?cp=4_2_0_0 the product itself is transformed to a feature that contains all features that are defined in the product configuration:
Quote:
Behind the scenes this setup will generate a feature containing the plug-ins or features specified in your product configuration file. This generated feature is then used to drive a normal feature based headless build.


How can I disable this behavior, so that no "wrapper feature" is created and all features are installed separately instead?

Thanks in advance,
Michael

There is no way to disable that behaviour and still allow you build your product. PDE Build creates the feature based off the product config and builds that. It does not have the ability to build a product configuration directly.

If you don't want to build the top level feature/product you can just build the other features (either from the UI export wizard or headlessly).
