It doesn't work that way; ordinary workspace Java projects can't depend
on installed plug-ins. You can depend on plug-in code if the plugin is
loaded as a workspace project (as opposed to being installed into the
running Eclipse instance), but I don't think that's what you're talking
It's possible to write a plugin that modifies workspace projects to add
things to their build path; perhaps that what you want?
