Product Customization project was started to provide Equinox Transforms tools into the PDE.
Equinox Transforms brings the ability of project customization into Eclipse platform. PDE Product Customization tooling is intended to support this customization process. The transforms will be added to the product by simple extensions' tree modifications [graphics needed].
Example: Disable Problem View
User is on the product customization page in product editor.
Disable option from context menu .
This way new transform is added to the product plug-in.
All transforms are managed within one (product) plug-in. Transforms are held in multiple transform files. There are two reasons for that:
- flexibility (transforms can be imported into product)
If transforms that can be built using editor tooling support are not sufficient user may edit them (or add new ones) using text editor.
