JBuilder 2007 - Enabling Starteam client from the command line

Abstract: JBuilder 2007 - Enabling Starteam client from the command line

Question

I need to install JBuilder 2007 on a large number of machines in my organization and I need to enable the Starteam client on all of these installations. Normally I would have to enable the Starteam client on each machine after installing. Is there a way to automate this?

Answer

Eclipse has a command line interface for the update manager. The following command could be run from each machine, perhaps in a batch file:

C:\javadev\JBuilder2007>.\jre\bin\java -cp startup.jar org.eclipse.core.launcher.Main -configuration configuration_JBuilder -application org.eclipse.update.core.standaloneUpdate -command enable -featureId� com.borland.starteam -to jbuilder

The full syntax to the command line is available in the online help. Search for "Running update manager from command line"
