Hi,

is it possible to uninstall a feature which is included Oomph's setup?

The problem is that Oomph reinstalls it after an Eclipse restart. Is there a way to permanently remove a feature and tell Oomph not to reinstall it?

Kind regards
Oliver

Oliver,

Yes and no. As long as you reference a product or project setup that
requires the feature to be installed, it will be installed when it's not
present. There are a couple of things you can do. In Window ->
Preferences -> Oomph -> SetupTasks you could enable "Skip automatic task
execution at startup time". Then the feature won't be automatically
installed on startup. Of course it will still be installed if you do
Help -> Perform Setup Tasks... although you could selectively disable
the p2 task. Alternatively you can use Navigate -> Open Setup -> Open
Installation, double click the Installation object to bring up the
properties view and edit the Product Version property to change it to
the third choice, e.g., 4.5.2.20160218-0600 (<Self Products> -
Eclipse). This way the product version is effectively (it's
synthesized) exactly what you happen to have installed currently. If
you have a project setup, you can Navigate -> Open Setup -> Open
Workspace and edit it much the same way to remove all the Streams. If
you do both of these, only the setup tasks in your user.setup will apply.

Hi Ed,

thanks for your answer.

Unfortunately I do not want to disconnect the installation and the setup taks in general. I just would like to say: "Do not install feature x".

Oliver,

Hence the yes and no answer. If you want to be connected to something
that expects a feature to be installed, then you must expect the feature
to be installed. If you don't want that feature, you should connect to
something that's specialized to your needs. You can define your own
product versions for that purpose...
