       jh_installeclipse - Installs eclipse features built by pde-build into
       package build directories


       jh_installeclipse [debhelperoptions] [--install-name=name]
       [--pde-build-dir=dir] [feature[...]]


       jh_installeclipse is a javahelper program that handles installing
       eclipse features built by pde-build into package build directories.
       These features can be specified either in the package's eh-install file
       or via command-line.

       jh_installeclipse uses debhelper behind the scenes and are therefore
       subject to the compat level (e.g. when parsing eh-install files).

       jh_installeclipse will replace all the embedded orbit depends imported
       by jh_generateorbitdeps with symlinks post install. The symlinked jar
       files will also be used to populate ${orbit:Depends} variable.


           List the eclipse features to install into each package and
           optionally under which name. The format is a set of lines, where
           each line lists a file or files to install, and at the end of the
           line tells the name it should be installed under. You may use
           wildcards in the names of the files to install.

           If name is not present, eh_install will either use the install name
           given on the command line or attempt to guess it from the package
           name. It is perfectly legal for two or more features to be
           installed under the same name.


           Specifies the name to install under if it is not given in the file.
           It is perfectly legal to install more than one feature under the
           same name.

           Specifies the directory from where pde-build was run. Defauls to


       Suppose your package builds org.eclipse.emf and org.eclipse.xsd and you
       want to put org.eclipse.emf into eclipse-emf and org.eclipse.xsd into
       eclipse-xsd.  Then make debian/ contain:


       and debian/ contain:


       jh_installeclipse will then install org.eclipse.emf into
       usr/share/eclipse/dropins/emf/ and xsd into

       In case your package is not called eclipse-name, or you want to install
       two different features into the same package, you will have to provide
       a name. Suppose you wanted to install both eclipse above into a single
       package called foo, then debian/ should contain:

         org.eclipse.emf emf
         org.eclipse.xsf xsd



       This program is a part of javahelper and uses debhelper as backend.
       There are also tutorials in /usr/share/doc/javahelper.
