Buckminster Interference?

Weird … I just tried to build my RCP application and the ant script blew up.

It seems like there’s some kind of interference caused by the addition to Buckminster to my Eclipse install.

My build should not be referencing any buckminster functionality at all.

Unfortunately I don’t have the time to dig into the problem.

Removing P2 from RCP

Recently I was struggling with a problem having to do with the headless build of my RCP application.

For some reason the P2 update function was being included in the build application, even though I never specified it as a requirement for the feature or plug-in.

The result was, when the user clicked on the Installation Details button on the applications about box, the tabs for “Installed Software” and “Installation History” were shown … but they were both empty.

After a lot of web searching I was unable to find a way to exclude the P2 feature & plug-in’s from my application.

My suspicion is that one of the other plug-in’s or feature’s that I’m using has p2 as a requirement.
