Does e4 RCP support adding features (plug-ins) by copying them into the plug-in directory? |
I have an e4 based RCP application in development. The target platforms are Windows, MAC and *unix. The UI is JavaFX FXML.
I have a requirement to add and remove eclipse features to the RCP. The existing update feature (<feature id="org.eclipse.equinox.p2.user.ui"/>) is not compatible with JavaFX FXML and e4. I don't have the skill level, or the time to figure out how to port the p2.user.ui feature over to e4 JavaFX FXML.
While brain-storming on other possible options I remembered that a long while back eclipse plug-ins were installed by downloading a zip file that contained the plug-in and coping the zip file into the "plugins" directory. If my understanding is correct the "dropins" directory is the current implementation.
Question 1) Does the e4 RCP framework support the old plugins method?
Question 2) Does the e4 RCP framework support adding eclipse features using the old plugins method?
Question 3) Does the e4 RCP framework support the new dropins method?
Question 4) Does the e4 RCP framework support adding eclipse features using the dropins method?
Question 5) What is the difference between the dropins method and the plugins method?
