There is this PDE bug to exclude launcher from target:

I would like to create a product that doesn't contain an executable
launcher. The reason for this is that I want one single download, not
one per platform (the use-case here is the "Headless Installer"
I have the product configuration defined and I have both a functional
Posix shell script and a Windows cmd script ready that finds the
equinox launcher jar and then does java -jar on it. It all works well
aside from one detail. The ProductAction seems to generate the
metadata for the binaries even though they are not included in the
product configuration. This means that at the moment, I'm not able to
publish my product and then "build" it using the director. I have to
hand-code the assembly myself (the resulting binary is 3.5Mb as a zip).
What is the intended behavior here? Would it be of interest to publish
products that do not contain the executable launcher and it's
associated shared objects (such as libcairo-swt.so and platform
specific launcher fragments)?
