#664 pydev_ext is only searched under $ECLIPSE_HOME

pydev is expecting to find pydev_ext file in the actual eclipse installation root. It does so even if the pydev plugins are installed in a different place and linked by file in $ECLIPSE_HOME/links.

In my case I have eclipse in '/opt/eclipse' and pydev in '/opt/eclipse-ext/pydev' but PyDev only looks into /opt/eclipse/features/com.python.pydev when searching for pydev_ext and pydev_ext_mail. It means /opt/eclipse-ext/pydev/eclipse/features/com.python.pydev is ignored.

Without this it is harder to make a simple package that will be independent from the eclipse as much as possible.

    Ok, for version 1.3.16 it'll also look for the com.python.pydev_xxx then will go to the parent folder and look for a child named 'com.python.pydev' (in that way it can be at the same location of the pydev plugins -- not that in this case it'll be inside the plugins and not in the features).

    Cheers,

    Fabio

    Maybe there is a misunderstanding. Currently PyDev searches only under Eclipse's instalation root while plugins can be installed at a completely different place. In my case directory structure looks like this:
    /opt
    /eclipse
    /features
    .. eclipse.org plugins
    /links
    pydev.link - text file pointing to /opt/eclipse-ext/pydev
    /plugins
    .. eclipse.org plugins
    /eclipse-ext
    /pydev
    /features
    .. pydev features
    /plugins
    .. pydev plugins

    and I expect pydev to search for pydev_ext* file under /opt/eclipse-ext/pydev.

    In the latest implementation (given your explained structure) it should also look in:

    /opt/eclipse-ext/pydev/plugins/com.python.pydev

    Isn't that what was requested?
