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

Content Tab

The Content Tab in the Edit Target Wizard is used to set a subset of plug-ins to include in the target platform. The tab displays a list of all plug-ins available in the target definition's locations. Only the plug-ins checked on this tab will be included. There are multiple ways to organize and filter the list. The target content can also be edited on the Content Page of the Target Editor.

Location Tab

Select / Deselect will check or uncheck the selected plug-ins.

Select All / Deselect All will check or uncheck all plug-ins in the target definition.

Add Required takes the set of currently checked plug-ins and determines all plug-ins required by them. This will also include any implicit dependencies set on this target. The required plug-ins will be checked in the list.

Use the Show options along with the filter text box at the top of the list to filter what is shown in the list. Showing plug-ins will show any non-source plug-ins in the target, while showing source bundles will display any source. Even if a plug-in is filtered from the list, it may be included in the target. You can see a count of included plug-ins underneath the list.

The Group By option is used to organize the list into different groups. The options are:

  1. None - No grouping, plug-ins sorted by name
  2. File Path - Grouped by the directory path the plug-ins are stored in on the local file system
  3. Location - Grouped by the locations set on the locations tab
