I'm trying to export my DSL plugins (two of them, related to the same final application) as a new Eclipse product. I'm trying to follow Lars Vogel's tutorial:

however this describes an RCP application which mine is not.

A product always points to one Application class. This Application class must implement the IApplication interface and for Eclipse 4 RCP applications it should point to the org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.swt.E4Application class.

Q #1: Do I have to write an RCP application? I am expecting that a person running the exported Eclipse would have the same experience that I do when I run "Eclipse application" from my Xtext/Xtend DSL environment. Just a regular Eclipse/Java IDE with my custom plugins also installed by default.

The Eclipse Product export tutorial describes a different entry for the "Application" setting: org.eclipse.core.runtime.products

I'm not having much luck with this tool, although I have a few error messages to follow.

Q #2: Can anyone tell me how to determine the correct entry for the "Application" class?
