|Re: [p2-dev] Installing features using P2 and maintaining JAR output|
Eclipse unzips every feature that contains touchpoint instruction “zipped” in its metadata.
So theoretically speaking, if you publish your feature without this instruction, after installation you’ll have a jar instead of folder.
However, it seems that having jars in the “features” folder leads to some issues with Eclipse update configurator – it expects to look for a feature.xml in a folder.
Have in mind that even if update configurator presence is not critical in your environment, there could be other Eclipse components that may rely on feature being unzipped.
In short, it’s possible but could lead to strange issues.
Hope this helps,
