Overview

This guide provides information for providers of marketplace instances that are called by the Eclipse Marketplace Client (MPC).

End-User URLs for solutions

In order to help solution vendors to facilitating installation of their solution, there are three ways for the MPC user to install a solution.

  • Inside MPC: Select a marketplace and search for the solution, click Install
  • DnD a MPC-enriched hyperlink into the running Eclipse instance
  • Navigate to a MPC-enriched hyperlink with the Eclipse-internal browser

For the last two solutions, the marketplace needs to put a link on the web presentation of their solution that contains the necessary information for MPC. Here is an example for such a link:

<p>
<a href="http://marketplace.eclipse.org/marketplace-client-intro?mpc_install=1376">Simple Install Link</a>
</p>

To improve the user expierence, also images can be used to link to the install target:

<p>
<a href="http://marketplace.eclipse.org/marketplace-client-intro?mpc_install=1376">
<img src="misc/mpcInstall.png" />
</a>
</p>


Requirements

User are now able to drag and drop this link into their running Eclipse instance to install the defined solution.

  • 336156: user can DnD url from web browser into Eclipse to start MPC install sequence
