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

One of Oomph's show case 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 a 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.

Eclipse Installer

The Eclipse Installer can be used to create specialized installations and to provision customized workspaces.



The following technologies are supported by Oomph:

  • Targlets provide a more expressive, flexible, scalable, and reliable infrastructure for defining a target platform.
  • Dynamic Working Sets provide the ability to create project working sets based on flexible predicates (rules) for specifying which projects should be in each particular working set.

Update Sites

We offer three types of drops: release, milestone, and nightly. They can be found in these composite repos:

The following is an uber composite of the three above composites:

For each of the four composite repos we offer a smaller variant that contains only the latest drop:

The single drops are individually available under as follows:


Note that at most five nightly drops are kept and that milestone drops are only kept until shortly after the next release.
