I'm currently migrating a Eclipse 2.1.1 Information Center to 3.0. I am
running both Information Centers with the recommended minimal set of
plug-ins. I found several documents, on dev.eclipse.org, stating that
plug-ins have to migrated from 2.1.1 to 3.0 using the PDE plug-in
migration tools. I've also seen documents stating that Eclipse 2.1.1
plug-ins will be recognized and used if they are placed in the
eclipse/plugins directory of a Eclipse 3.0 based product.
When I take a Eclipse 2.1.1 help plug-in, that extends
org.eclipse.help.toc, add it to the eclipse/plugins directory of a
full-fledged Eclipse 3.0 install, start the workbench, and view help, my
2.1.1 help plug-in is visible. When I take the same plug-in and add it to
the eclipse/plugins directory with the minimal plug-ins required to run an
Information Center, start Eclipse 3.0 in the information center mode, and
then view the information center in a browser, my 2.1.1 help plug-in is
So, my questions are:
-Why can I see an Eclipse 2.1.1 help plug-in in an Eclipse 3.0 workbench,
but not in an Eclipse 3.0 Information Center?
-Is it possible to configure Eclipse 3.0 Information Center to display
help plug-ins even if they don't have the <?eclipse version="3.0"?> tag?
Please let me know if I need to clarify the situation, or if this would be
better addressed by a different group.
