Hi,

I have defined some extension points in a fragment.
But I don't see those extension points in another plugins (those plugins
do have dependency on host plugin of that fragment)

Just wondering if it is the case that extension point must be defined in
plugin but not in a fragment?
Or am missing something?

Using eclipse 3.4

Thanks.

I don't think you can define extension points in a fragment. Fragments
are more for modifying the way a given plugin behaves internally (for
instance, for JVM or OS-dependent behavior). The interface that a
plug-in exposes to other plug-ins shouldn't depend on platform.

Why does your fragment need to be a fragment? Could it be a
full-fledged plug-in of its own?

Not entirely true, but the file is not called plugin.xml, but fragment.xml:
