|Re: [pdt-dev] Future of PDT development|
regarding a clever mechanism to re-install missing facet providers - this is something that would perfectly fit in fproj framework. Another great use case for it (but probably not on fproj level) is that you could then distribute slimmed down products, that automatically install additional features based on what user needs. Many Eclipse-based IDEs need that and implemented it on their own.

Is there a way to find/install programatically from eclipse marketplace?
Jacek suggested to have a look at http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/fproj/ (archiveved in jan 2012)
There may be the following scenario: One installs three plugins and facets and shares the pdt project it in svn/git. Another one is checking out. Now pdt (the builder ?) must be that clever to re-install the facet from marktplace.
Of course marketplace would be a good solution too. It is available and it is some kind of standard for all eclipse users. I am hoping the marketplace can be used as long as we are in experimental stage :)
