This action allows you to import individual features into your database instead of importing a complete Eclipse update site. This is also handy if you only need to update one particular feature of an already installed site.
To import a feature to your database do the following.
1. Click the "Import features" action button.
2. You will see the following dialog box.
In the dialog boxes ".jar file(s)" field enter in a list of jar files contained within the features directory of your site you wish to import.
3. Click OK.
The selected features will now be imported. If the feature already exists then it will be updated. If this feature is new to your database or does not match the existing version number then it will be added it as a new feature.
