Re: [wtp-dev] How to test new plug-ins?

For folks having trouble with this, the "work around" (?) is to create a feature patch (with P2 meta data).
While this is a pretty big change, I think once you've done it, it won't be too terribly hard to do a second time.

If you'd like to "follow progress" see bug

The new (near) RC1 version of the platform has the "create P2 meta data" field which that bug speaks about (but not M7).

I am having the same problem. I also tried to drop move around the plugins directories inside of the dropins but with no effect. My next attemp will be to unzip one by one as it was recomended (which i don't see why it would make a difference)

[wtp-dev] How to test new plug-ins?

I'm having a real problem with the latest driver trying to figure out how to test a patched plug-in.

I've downloaded and upzipped the latest WTP driver and pre-req's.

I have an updated version of my plug-in that I want to test, but I can't seem to get the driver to pick it up. It has a later qualifier than the plug-in that is in the driver.

I've tried putting it in several different places:
  • eclipse/plugins
  • eclipse/dropins
  • eclipse/dropins/eclipse/plugins

but it won't get picked up and I don't see any errors as to why not.  I wonder if it because my jar is not signed??

(I'm running some performance tests so I'd prefer not to run it from a development environment).

Is this working for other people? Is there some trick that I'm missing. (I have been using -clean).
