I'm trying to sequence the following build tasks:

1. Do a product build.
2. Do a feature build of a test feature with test fragments.

For the test feature build, most of my fragments are hosted by plug-ins output by the product build. I would like to build against those JARs, rather than sucking in and rebuilding the binaries again for all the test plug-in dependencies.

But the test fragments also depend on JUnit, the EMMA OSGi hook, and a couple other test-related bundles. Obviously those aren't part of my product build output.

Is there an easy way to specify two base locations for the build? I see the alternative as combining the features/plugins from the product build output with a base Eclipse install and my other test dependencies.. but all that I/O will just slow down my build in the middle..

Maybe you could build your test feature as a "normal" feature, using the pluginPath property to tell the build that it can find plugins in the eclipse base you used to build the product, but also in the product plugins directory, that should contain your plugins.
