Hi,

A .product file can specify branding info. This info goes into the
.product file.

A plug-in can also use the extension point: org.eclipse.core.runtime.products and define properties on it. This info goes into the plugin.xml file.

This for product images, splash screen, about infos, etc.

So, which set of infos is taken into account/has priority? The one in the plugin.xml or the one in the product file. What is the rule for this?

Thanks!

Gabriel

I believe that the plugin.xml is the actual location for this information.
I think that when you change the .product file, it writes those changes out
to the plugin.xml file. There is a "Synchronize" link on the overview tab
of the product editor.
