I've implemented a custom welcome page on Eclipse and I've added a list of features there. If the user click on any of these features I'd like to show the Install New Software dialog with the name of the feature the user selected.

What I did so far is (into the xml file):

<group id="group1">
   <link label="click here to install Feature1" 
     url="http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/runAction?pluginId=org.eclipse.platform&class=org.eclipse.platform.internal.LaunchUpdateIntroAction"
     id="XXX" style-id="YYY"/>
</group>


Any idea how to set the url properly?

Can you help me?

I think I solved!
by extending the org.eclipse.ui.intro.configExtension and defining my own action (by just opening the InstallationDialog dialog)
and setting this url into the xml:
url="http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/definedAction"
does the work!
