Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Native touchpoint

James can expand, but some things that I recall from a declarative system we built on top of the old installhandler code:

* copying files (ie., we package our own launcher and copy it to a proper location... we also package vms as bundles)
* native operations
* creating icons in menus or on a desktop if available
* creating windows registry entries
* setting environment variables
* modifying files on disk
* chmod'ng things
* running arbitrary scripts (ya, I know, scary) like .bat or .sh's

That's all I can remember off the top of my head.

Cheers,

James, to enlight us, could you please describe the kind of things that you
are doing with install handlers?

Please either add javadoc info or wiki info on the design of the
org.eclipse.equinox.prov.touchpoint.natives and . This appears to be where
install handler equivalent functionality would be performed. I don't need
extensive docs. I just need to know the plan so I can evaluate how it can
be used. We use the install handlers extensively in the current eclipse and
I am attempting to locate the home for this functionality. Also is Rhino
_javascript_ envisioned to be the main scripting mechanism for the native
touchpoint?_______________________________________________
