Hi there,

I'm playing a bit with oomph, mainly by looking at examples I find in
the web.

I try to create my own product setup, which should also define some
custom branding specifications. From some examples I understand I can
add an Annotation with source
"http://www.eclipse.org/oomph/setup/BrandingInfo" and key/value-pairs.
Specific keys I've seen are the following, but I'm not sure how they are
specified

readmePath
imageURI
siteURI

I assume these are only the branding informations for the entry in the
Eclipse installer but not the information (e.g. splash screen) for the
product that is created during install, right?

Any documentation for the supported keys available?

Can the path's/URIs be relative to the setup file or do they have to be
online-ressources?

How can I specify the splash screen?

From this bug I assume it works somehow
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=427605
But how?

Cheers,
Hauke

Of course you can look at how they are specified in the generated
product catalog.

Yes, they are only for information displayed in the installer. E.g., the
readme link in the simple installer (relative to the installation
location), the image shown in the simple installer and in details of
the advanced installer, the web link to a home page with information
bout the product.

Documentation, what's that? :P

The URIs are generally to online resources.

That's a question of how you build your product; it's part of the
product definition. This isn't Oomph related...

That's the splash for the installer itself. We control that because the
installer is our product.
