Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-1010) Eclipse plugins add too many menu items
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2015 17:54:53 GMT

Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-1010:
--------------------------------------------

I'll try to move from feature-based product definition to a plugin-based one. Some Eclipse
features (like org.eclipse.platform) just add too many plugins to the RCP application.

> The Tycho based build currently uses a 'feature' based product, and all Eclipse features/plugins
are the original (not stripped down). The result is that in the Studio product the plugins
add lot of menu items (Team, Debug, etc.). We should try to reduce the amount of plugins if
possible. If needed we may consider to remove menu items.
> It is possible to hide UI elements provided by other plugins, see http://codeandme.blogspot.de/2011/09/hiding-ui-elements-in-rcp.html
