Hi there,
I've created a GMF plugin and now would like to give it to my users as a standalone Eclipse, that is I would like to give an Eclipse installation without any other plugin (Java, C++, etc.) but my plugin.

I've read a way to do this is through the experimental SDK, creating a gmfgen file with the RCP option, but I'm a bit confused, since I've also read it's possible to export a generic Eclipse plugin as an "Eclipse product".

I've tried to export my GMF plugin as an Eclipse product, but can't understand which application to choose in the export wizard.

What would you recommend?

Thank you in advance,

cheers

Hi giampow, this is yourself some time ahead:

I've found the solution for your problem, just open the Eclipse view named "GMF Dashboard", click the check button "RCP", then click the command link "transform", and then regenerate the java code.

Now you should get an RCP application (thus, the code generation has now included all the classes needed for the plugin to work as an RCP app)

cheers,
yourself

well, I wanted to report the solution I've found myself,
hoping it might be helpful to others:

it's not actually a solution to a problem, but just the way GMF works.
But those who are new to GMF and/or Eclipse develoment may find it not obvious.
