WTP Install/Update on Custom Eclipse Application [message #167736] Thu, 27 April 2006 16:03 Go to next message

My company is developing an application that is based on the Eclipse
platform. The application is installed in a separate folder from the
original Eclipse and linked to using the links folder in the original
Eclipse install. We did this so we could easily update our application and
independently manage its folders.

I was surprised when I added WTP using the Eclipse Update that the WTP jars
and folders were added to our application's plugins folder versus the
original eclipse install's plugins folder.

1. Is this normal behavior ?
2. What if there were several links in the eclipse's original install link
folder, which one would get the new plugin?
3. Is this because we identified our application as an eclipse product in
the configuration/config.ini ?
4. Can we avoid new plugin additions going to our plugin folder?

I've not tried or am not familiar with this use case, exactly.
But my guess is its related to the 'config.ini' setting ... being
seen as "the main" location.

Normally, though, with update manager, it lets you specify an "alternative"
location to install the update jars. Did you try that? Are you using the
UM dialogs?
Or do you mean some "batch" process?
