Hello everybody,

today I was wondering what are the limitations of installing/running a plugin packed (as a jar) vs. unpacked (as dir)?

What do I mean by un-/packed?



As far as I know, there is no documentation about the limitations of either version.

The only things I could find are rumors like:


  1. In case a plug-in contains native code, e.g., dll files or others, which do not work from inside a JAR file, the plug-in itself should be unpacked.
  2. If a class within a plugin needs to access a resource via an absolute path.


The first rumors seem to be not true: https://www.eclipse.org/lists/tycho-user/msg08724.html
