Hi,
I'm trying to create a Product Setup model and make some changes to the installation, which requires knowing where Eclipse is installed. I have a variable declared as
${installation.location|uri}/eclipse
but apparently on Mac this isn't correct: it should be ${installation.location|uri}/Eclipse.app. Is there some variable to get the actual installation folder?
Thanks.

You can use a combination of variables:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<setup:VariableTask
    xmi:version="2.0"
    xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"
    xmlns:setup="http://www.eclipse.org/oomph/setup/1.0"
    name="installation.full.path"
    value="${installation.location/}${installation.relativeProductFolder}"/>
And then you can use ${installation.full.path|uri} if you need the URI for that.

Another trick is to use "configuration:/" to express a reference to installation's configuration folder. E.g., I use this to copy the vi plugin's license to each installation:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<setup:ResourceCopyTask
    xmi:version="2.0"
    xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"
    xmlns:setup="http://www.eclipse.org/oomph/setup/1.0"
    sourceURL="file:/C:/Users/merks/viPlugin2.lic"
    targetURL="configuration:/../"/>

Great, thanks! For future reference, I was wondering if there's somewhere I can find a list of these variables and their properties? The "Eclipse Oomph Authoring" wiki page only has variables starting with "scope." which isn't complete.

The information you were looking for is actually in https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#Declaring_and_Using_Variables:

Attribute values of setup tasks with a defined ID. The reference syntax is ${taskID.attributeName}.


What's really missing is a reference of all the setup tasks with all their attributes.
