The Oomph Project is dedicated to providing extensions to the Eclipse Platform that improve the user experience.

One of Oomph's showcase technologies is the Eclipse Installer. The installer exploits Oomph's flexible and powerful setup engine to automate the installation of applications as well as the provisioning of workspaces. For an overview of this technology in action on a very large useful example, have a look at the instructions for Provisioning the Platform SDK which creates a dedicated installation for working the source code of all projects that comprise the Eclipse Platform's SDK.

Note that the latest version of the installer supports installing Marketplace listings.
