I have a RCP product in which several plugins are installed. Some of these plugins should be updated from time to time. I read that this is only possible if the product which bundles the plugins is updated, too.
The problem is that the application can't finish the update because of the bundled jre which is running in the update process. If i rename the bundled jre folder and use the installed system jre everything works fine.

My questions are:

Is there a better way to execute the update process without the need of a system jre instead of the bundled jre (No need for the user to make an extra step and install a system jre)?

I addition is it really necessary to update the whole product for three plugins which have to be updated?


At the moment i use Eclipse 3.7.1 as the base platform.

I have a product file with six features (which reference the following plugins: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.rcp.feature, org.eclipse.rcp,the base plugins and the three plugins which should be updated) in the "Dependencies" tab.

Thanks in advance for any help!
