Eclipse Platform Plug-in Development Environment Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Feature Import

Open the feature import wizard File > Import... > Plug-in Development > Features from the top level menu.

Feature Import

Import Location

Open the target platform preference page Window > Preferences... > Plug-in Development > Target Platform preference page.

The Target Platform... button is a shortcut that opens the Target Platform preference page for inspection or modification.

If you choose to import features from an arbitrary location on the file system and you do not wish to change the location of the target platform in the preferences, uncheck the Choose from features in the target platform checkbox. Then, use the Browse... button to navigate and enter the directory of choice. Finally, make sure to press the Reload button to refresh the dialog.

Import Format and Destination

When features are imported, a project is created in the workspace for each feature. The project name is the concatenation of the feature ID and "-feature".

If PDE detects that your workspace is set up for feature-based self-hosting (as detailed in the Tips and Tricks section), the features will be imported into a features/ directory that is a sibling of the plugins/ directory where the workspace is located.
