Hi Salinda,

you shouldn't use the Eclipse Plugin Project Wizard (EPPW) directly, but
whatever JDT/PDE API the EPPW uses itself. It is fine to depend on
(non-ui) JDT/PDE bundles. Manually implementing what JDT/PDE does is a
dead end to me.

Generally though, I want you to describe your current use case from the
user perspective here. When and why do users want to generate a plug-in
project? Why can't they use the EPPW in this use case?
