Plug-in Jars in a zip [message #603603] Wed, 25 November 2009 10:48

using Eclipse 3.2.2 (Callisto) I have the following problem.

I hava a feature.xml from which I generated all the build.xml files, for
the feature as well as for the plug-ins.

In order to build the feature I run the feature's build.xml with these
targets: clean,build.jars,zip.distribution

The result is a zip file with the name and version of the feature in its
name and features and plugins directories with the respective feature
and plugins.

So far so good. What's wrong with the zip file is the fact that the
feature and the plugins are stored as directories as opposed to jar
files. I need the plug-ins to be packed as jars as is the case with all
the other eclipse packages.

So how can I get the PDE Tools to produce build.xml files that pack jars
into the zip?

Of course I could use
Export...->Plugin Development->Deployable Features
but then I would have to create the name of the zip file on my own.

Sorry for bothering you with such a basic question but even searching
the web couldn't get me an answer that matches my question.

Thanks and Regards,
