Hello all,

Today, I am trying to install plugins from the command line. The reason for doing so, is because I have to set up a development on a VM immediately after it is instantiated. Basically I am trying to automate things, thus I don't have VNC or SSH over -x11 to install from the GUI. I have started the shell script but am stuck on some of the documentation found at:

http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclips e.platform.doc.isv/reference/misc/update_standalone.html

my shell script can be seen below.

 
ECLIPSE_VER=eclipse-SDK-3.6.1-linux-gtk-x86_64
ECLIPSE_SRC_PATH=/home/${USER}/eclipse_install
ECLIPSE_INST_PATH=/home/${USER}/eclipse
ECLIPSE_PLUGIN_INST=${ECLIPSE_INST_PATH}/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.1.0.v20100507.jar

export ECLIPSE_INST_PATH

if [ -d "/home/${USER}" ]
        then
                echo "/home/${USER} exits"
                if [ -d "${ECLIPSE_INST_PATH}" ]
                        then
                        echo "Weclome back $USER"
                        exit
                else
                        cd /home/${USER}/
                        tar -xvf ${ECLIPSE_SRC_PATH}/${ECLIPSE_VER}.tar.gz
                        cd ${ECLIPSE_INST_PATH}
                        java -jar ${ECLIPSE_PLUGIN_INST} \
                                -application  org.eclipse.update.core.standaloneUpdate \
                                -command addSite \
                                -from http://download.eclipse.org/tools/cdt/releases/helios
                fi
else
        echo "/home/${USER}/" does not exist
fi


Any help in using the java -jar ${ECLIPSE_PLUGIN_INST} -command install -from ${URL} command correctly would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Matthew Hoggan
