Subject Eclipse plugin update site
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2005 11:25:22 GMT

I've never built an update site for Eclipse so I have a few questions 
about how this works.

Looking at your patches to the above issue I see that there are two 
files, the site.xml file seems to define how the update site is to be 
structured and the feature.xml file seems to define how the Forrest 
feature is collated together.

What concerns me is that your instructions say that I should put the 
update site in SVN, however, this has three jars within it that are all 
built from other code we have available to us (Burrokeet Servlet control 
plugin, soon to be donated here, forrest plugin and the new forrest 
feature you have created). This seems to be a waste of resources.

As you can see I have restructured the SVN to allow us to keep the 
various plugins and features you will be building in a logically 
structured way.

Having done this it seems to me that the site.xml file should now go in 
the root of our tools/eclipse folder and therefore reuse the 
plugins/features from tools/eclipse/plugins and tools/eclipse/features.

Is this correct?

In addition I have now moved the Servlet controller code from Burrokeet 
to the Forrests SVN and updated the Plugin code accordingly. We now need 
to make the update site use this code rather than the deprecated 
Burrokeet code.
