Re: [p2-dev] what variable should i use to run some native touch point actions on the feature that is just installed?

found it

i have to say not directly obvious (and what then that feature thing does of unpack not unpack i have no idea)

but adding: Eclipse-BundleShape: dir 
to the manifest of the plugin works

i have the plugin, the setJvm is working (the eclipse.ini is updated)
but updated to:

that has 2 problems, i kind of expect a full path... this is my p2.inf:


I wonder what happens if i make the eclipse install dir readonly.. 

But ofcourse the main problem is that it doesn't extract it..
The feature.xml does say that:


(i also tried without unpack="true" which is i think default value)

On the plugin itself i think i can't say that.. is there another place?

So making it plugins that unzip..?

i can try this.. would also mean i think that i don't get that problem of deletion because eclipse doesn't try to directly delete plugins (i think, not sure about unzipped plugins)

Hi Johan,

It looks like using features (group/jar) makes things more complex here.
It is indeed likely that all this was never successfully used by anyone so far ;)
However, if the final goal is to ship a JRE as a p2 unit, what just using platform-specific bundles instead of platform-specific features? With bundles, you wouldn't face the group vs jar issue and might be more successful.
