Hello everybody,

I am new here and I really searched a lot but could not find a solution for my problem.

I want to build a custom Eclipse-Installer where I only can choose the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" in the Product List.
In the Projects List should only be my .setup File and nothing else.

How can I realize this?

Thank you for your help!

Best regards

If you host your own index you can control exactly what is in there:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#Hosting_your_own_index_.2F_catalogs

With a Configuration you can automate the selection process:

I also got the installer working with this tutorial.
Thanks a lot for giving a hint here.

But:

I don't get the part where the Windows installer gets decomposed.
Where is the BINExtractor.jar stored? According to methods described in the tutorial it's already included in the eclipse-installer.exe but how do I access it?

Since this was the problem I was looking around for a pre-compiled BINExtractor but I only find the official source code and this is not able to compile on my machine.

Maybe someone of you did this decomposing before and knows some tips.

I guess you're trying to do what's described in https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#How_to_extract_the_constituent_parts_that_comprise_the_Windows_self-extracting_installer_executable and are asking about where to find org.eclipse.oomph.extractor.lib-*.jar. You should find versions of it in your bundle pool, i.e., in ~/.p2/pool/plugins ,or if you've kept your installer in a permanent location, then in the plugins folder of that installation's folder you'll find it as well.
