Oomph's Targlet technology extends PDE's base functionality for specifying a target platform definition by providing a more expressive, flexible, and reliable mechanism. The Targlets framework is fully integrated with PDE. It uses PDE's target location extension point, providing a Targlet Container implementation to augment PDE's built-in target location implementation.

Install Targlet Support

Use Help → Install New Software... and enter one of the update sites, e.g., http://download.eclipse.org/oomph/updates/milestone, into the "Work with:" combo. Enter "Oomph Targlets" in the filter, and select the Oomph Targlets feature.
