Use Xtext Buckminster Wizard

Because I wanted to include Xtext projects I ran the Xtext buckminster wizard for these projects:

I left this page with default values and clicked on finish. buckminster 3

Build p2 Repository

Right click on the site directory and goto buckminster->Invoke action.

Select site.p2 or, and click OK. This creates a p2 repository.


Install from p2 Repository

In help->Install New Software.
