i want to setup my rcp project with a maven build. so first i want to
build succesfully the example from the pde-maven-plugin site.

i started by downloading the following eclipse sdk and delta pack:

i read through the examples from pde-maven-plugin mojo and found a
tutorial that builds a product.

this tutorial can be found here: de-maven-plugin/

i downloaded this one: (if you want an SSCCE

after i imported the project to my eclipse ide i have done som changes to and pom.xml to ensure the paths are well formed. (the
name of the plugin is: test.pde_maven_plugin.simple_application)

now i tried the pde build to be sure its running without maven:

1) launch the application (SUCCESSFUL)
2) launch the product (SUCCESSFUL)
3) export as product and launch (SUCCESSFUL)

everything works fine! now i tried to do the maven install, but this

D:\Programme\EclipseGanymede\plugins\org.eclipse.pde.build_3 .4.0.v20080604\scripts\productBuild\productBuild.xml:25:
The following error occurred while executing this line:
D:\Programme\EclipseGanymede\plugins\org.eclipse.pde.build_3 .4.0.v20080604\scripts\productBuild\productBuild.xml:53:
Unable to find plug-in: test.pde_maven_plugin.simple_application. Please
check the error log for more details.

as you can see, the pde build (i think) can't found the application i want
to export, it seems that maven doesn't calls the pde build for the
application first, it assumes that the plugin has already be there?

if i change the maven packaging to jar, do the install, copy this jar to
my target.env into plugins change packaging back to zip, do the install
again. everything runs fine, but this isn't a great solutions or? in my
pov i think this should be done by pde build? please correct me if i am

if you need more informartions just let me know -- or if you got time have
a look inside the maven-pde-plugin tutorial.

thank you
