    Steps to sequence the application:

    <Step1> Package Configuration Wizard

    Title Information

    For Suite Name (Required) enter: eclip35.v01

    For Title enter: eclip35.v01

    For Comments enter: eclip35.v01

    For Server Hostname enter: eclip35.v01

    For Server Port enter: eclip35.v01

    For Server URL Path enter: eclip35.v01


    <Step2> Before sequencing

    Create dummy M:\ on your virtual machine (map to a real location but change the display name to “M”  (we use M: as a user data drive in production)

    <Step3>Begin sequencing:-

    ·         Copy all eclipse install files to your Q: / drive location. This ensures that you capture the files as this application does not install files to the local machine.

    ·         In Q: / make a short cut of eclipse.exe and rename it to Eclipse 3.5, cut and paste to “Program Development” in all users.

    ·         Start Application from start menu.

    ·         Change workspace to M: / and check “use this as the default and do not ask again”.

    ·         Restart application.

    Known Issues/limitations: N/A

    Additional Notes/Links:

    Website: -

    On disk, an Eclipse based product is structured as a collection of plug-ins. Each plug-in contains the code that provides some of the product's functionality. The code and other files for a plug-in are installed on the local computer, and get activated automatically as required. A product's plug-ins is grouped together into features. A feature is a unit of separately downloadable and installable functionality.

    The fundamentally modular nature of the Eclipse platform makes it easy to install additional features and plug-ins into an Eclipse based product, and to update the product's existing features and plug-ins. You can do this either by using traditional native installers running separately from Eclipse, or by using the Eclipse platform's own update manager. The Eclipse update manager can be used to discover, download, and install updated features and plug-ins from special web based Eclipse update sites.
