I am facing a RCP 3.x application (multiple platform) export errors that I have not been able to solve.
I am using OS X El Capitan with Eclipse Mars.2 and java 1.8.0_77-b03.

Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance Smile !

Here are steps that could be used in order to reproduce the problem, I hope :

1) Download eclipse 4.5.2 for OS X from :

2) Edit running target platform to add delta pack repository following these instructions :

and using this software site url :

3) Create an eclipse RCP 3.x application (minimal)

4) Launch as Eclipse application => Ok

5) Create product configuration from this previous launch configuration then launch product => Ok

6) Export for OS X only :

Don't work because export is not properly done. Contents directory of the .app Mac OS X folder is not created.

7) Export for other platform :

I get this error in Problem Occurred dialog :

'Export Product' has encountered a problem
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: testRCPProduct 0.0.0 (testRCP.product 0.0.0)

The Product > Export uses PDE/Build, which is aged and not a recommended build process any more. When PDE/Build works, it's slow. When it doesn't work, it's nearly impossible to diagnose.

Save yourself grief and follow the advice further up on and use Tycho to do your build. There's some up-front cost to setting up your build, but you then have a reproducible build formula that's far easier to diagnose. And Tycho is also much faster than PDE/Build: one of my clients had a build go from 2 hours with Product > Export to 7 minutes with Tycho.

thanks a lot for your advice. I've followed many web tutorial specially this one and I've been able to build my application.

I still have a problem for multiplatform building but so far so good...
