Hi All,
I have some queries related to the Headless build mechanism(PDE Build) in
Eclipse. Please find the queried below. I would be happy to know some
comments/views on the same.

1. After running a headless build, some plug-ins gets jared and others
don't. On what criterion is the artifact generation(jar/folder) decided?
Have I missed something in the manifest that is responsible for the above
behavior?
2. Is there a difference in the way headless and non-headless builds
works? I build a plug-in in headless and non-headless mode, this was my
observation - In non-headless, a folder is generated and in headless a jar
file is generated. To be more specific, the plug-in I am trying to build
contains a number of XSL files along with Java code.


Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Neeraj Bhusare

The shape of the resulting artifact (jar/folder) is determined by the
feature containing the plug-in.
In the feature.xml editor, on the Plug-ins tab under Plug-in Details,
look at "Unpack the plug-in archive after installation". This
corresponds to an 'unpack="true"' attribute in the xml. Unpack=true
results in a folder, unpack=false results in a jar. The default value
is true.

During export, the value is determined by the "Package plug-ins as
individual JAR archives" checkbox on the Options tab of the export wizard.
