Hi,

I often use the oomph expert mode to deploy a fresh Eclipse instance (eg IDE for Eclipse Committers). When I am not selecting any project to be provisioned, I end up with problems with the workspace.location variable. No matter what I set there, Eclipse will nag me to fill out this variable on each IDE startup showing the Eclipse Updater popup.

Is there a way to fill out this variable properly?

The workspace.location variable comes from (is induced from) a Workspace task which has ID workspace and only the Project Catalogs have a Workspace task. If you have tasks that are not in Project setup, it will be better to use ${osgi.instance.area} because that value is always defined by the Equinox runtime.

Note also the following:

1) ${osgi.instance.area} expands to a URI, typically a file: URI. Use ${osgi.instance.area|file} to convert it to a file system path.
2) At BOOTSTAP trigger the ${osgi.instance.area} points to the instance area of the installer itself, i.e., its configuration folder.
