RE: [cdt-dev] Best way to send a patched CDT?
Thanks Christian and James for your
I tried installing CDT with P2 and then using the dropins
folder but as Christian mentions, that didn't work.
-> What did work was to use the dropins folder of an
Eclipse without CDT, and put all the CDT plugins in there.
Then, I was able to put test CDT plugins that had a
new version numbers.
I think this was also James' suggestion, while
adding the bit about changing the version
(good thing he did, 'cause I would have screwed that up
Either way, thanks both!
I think I've read somewhere that bundles in the
dropins/ folder cannot supersede bundles installed by P2: the P2
reconciler/discovery thing ignores anything it finds that has the same ID as
an installed IU.
I have attempted this before, with no joy. Mind
you, I should mention that I have attempted the patch feature method, also
without success. But probably I did something wrong ... which is easy to

I'm trying to find the most efficient way to send
a patched CDT to someone.
Sending all plugins is kind of big and I'd like
to avoid it.
If I build a single plugin, can the recipient
manually replace the plugin in a nightly build zip file?
The nightly build zip file is a p2 update site.
There's XML in there that describes the IUs so manually replacing the plugin
Feature patches can work if you want to be able
to update your changed plugin set using the p2 UI.
If you're just
distributing one plugin for testing, say, the dropins folder should do the
trick (and is likely the easiest way). NB if you don't increment the
plugin's version number in the plugin manifest p2 will just ignore
Thanks for any suggestions
