Hi.

I have a RCP application which is built using a ".product" file and "Eclipse product export wizard".
The product configuration is based on plug-ins (specifing dependencies).
I would like to add in the product .zip some files and folders...
Eclipse documentation indicates that:

Add a build.properties file containing absolute root properties to the automatically generated container feature:

${buildDirectory}/build.properties: generatedBuildProperties = ${buildDirectory}/root.properties
${buildDirectory/root.properties: root = absolute:${buildDirectory}/rootfiles
${buildDirectory}/rootfiles/*


I don't know exactly how can I get the "generated container feature".
My plugins don't have any features.
Could you give me any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
Carlos.

The "generated container feature" is feature that is automatically
generated for you during the product export. The contents of this
feature will be based on the .product file.

These root properties the documentation refers to are for a headless
build, they won't work when exporting from the UI because export manages
all of the build's properties for you.

To get root files, you will need to set up a headless build, or change
your product to use features.
