I have created a plugin for Eclipse. With the help of this plugin, I am creating a new type of project, let's say
XTypeProject. The creation of this
XTypeProject is similar to any other type of project you create in Eclipse.
File -> New -> YourProjectType
I just want to know whether there is any way I can create a simple
XTypeProject in Eclipse through some external mechanism, anything, and this project created through an external mechanism has to be similar to the project I create using Eclipse. Can Maven help me in this? Or is there any other way to do that?
Best How To :
Here are my findings :-
I went through the advice of Amos M. Carpenter and searched for the source code of the plugin that I have written.
After that, I did a debug (Plugin Debug) and searched for the methods that are called when we create a project from the Eclipse menu.
I took a note of all those class files and their methods that are called and the information/parameters they need for further processing.
I initiated the same call through ANT and was able to do what I wanted.
Thank you for the support.
P.S - I can't share my Plugin details as it is written for an organisation.
