An update site project can be created either inside your current workspace, or you can create it anyplace on the local file system.
Follow these steps to create an update site
- Select File -> New -> Project -> Plug-in Development -> Update Site Project.
- Enter the project name, then select Finish.
- The Site Manifest Editor opens, enabling you to add features to the site. Select Add Feature to add features to the site.
You only need to add the features that you specifically want to make available for installation. Features included in other features do not need to be added here unless you want to make them separately installable.
- Once you have added all the features, select Build or Build All to build the features and the feature content.
Refer to the Platform Plug-in Developers Guide
and to Eclipse ( http://help.eclipse.org/help32/index.jsp
) for more information on using the update site editor.
