I also had a shot at building Eclipse plugins quite some time ago. I
was focusing on third party plugins rather than the core Eclipse
components but there is some overlap there. Ideally they should be
built using the Eclipse PDE but last time I tried, unbundling the JARs
was still a nightmare. I believe the tools Serkhan mentioned are
supposed to improve this situation but I've stopped using Eclipse since
then. For a while now, we are supposed to have been using the P2 system
for handling the plugins but due to a silly bug that's never been
fixed, Gentoo still isn't using it.
