and maybe it is possible to add the user library automatically as well. Maybe Koen has some connections to find out. Google did not lead me to anything in 20 minutes.
I subscribe to the idea. But then we need to limit ourselves to a fresh instance of the Java or JEE edition of Eclipse, as the update mechanism will pull in the other dependencies when using the Classic version.
Automatically adding user libraries is probably more tricky. They sit in the preferences whick is a part of the workspace. So if you want to do that, you probably need to ship a 'default' workspace as well (like we did in the past).
I did find something out in, there seems to be a configuration/preference/installer handler that can be defined in the feature.xml file. I did not see any example, but it could be used to change preferences install time, so maybe a default.
Regarding JEE/Classic, the update mechanism could still be used. This was only for the demo.setup.
in the project community download, i think we can limit ourselves.
maybe for those that want to install it in every possible version of eclipse should revert to the jbosstools update site.
is that an option?
