Re: [eclipse-dev] Install/Update API


I have a question about the extensibility of the update mechanism within Eclipse. I would like to extend the Eclipse mechanism to allow me to install not only Eclipse plug-ins and features, but also standalone tools, installed in a directory outside of the //eclipse directory.

Is this something that we can do using the Eclipse install/update mechanism? Perhaps there are plug-ins that we can do specifically within Install and Update?

Thanks in advance for your help.

The Eclipse Install/Update team would like to know of any and all cases
where the current (2.1) Update API is used. Note that we are only
interested in programmatic uses (i.e. referencing any of the non-internal classes in org.eclipse.update.core plug-in) and not actually using features
and/or update sites.
