Richard,

It sounds like a question best asked on the WTP newsgroup, which I've
added to the "to" list of the reply.

Oh, great, thanks. I'm just keeping forgetting that there's that many
places to ask :-)

You'll also need to add the org.wst.common and org.wst.sse plugin's as
well. Also the XML editor does require some plugins that are only in
the platform IDE, so you may need to include some additional platform
resources as well.

Thanks David, I'm going to try this out.
Btw, are there any tools to get know the dependencies somehow for a
specific plug-in? I don't know where to start searching the dependencies.

Richard,

If you use the Plug-ins view of the PDE perspective you can use Open
Dependencies. The dependencies are also shown in the Package Explorer
if you expand "Plug-in Dependencies"; go figure. :-P

When creating a launch specification, you can pick some plugins, and
tell it to include all the dependencies. That's another way to figure
out the closure and to test that it works quickly...

Hi Richard,

If you have created a product configuration,
you can look at the runtime configuration
and use the "validate plugins" button on the "plugin" tab.
