--I completely agree that doing it this way makes it impossible to update 'normally'.
--My RDi 18.104.22.168, based on Eclipse 4.4.2 does not have a '/dropins' folder.
--That doesn't mean I shouldn't /make/ one.
--It means that to date, after several years of doing it this way, I haven't /needed/ one.
If you make a dropins folder, you will want to restart your Eclipse twice.
The first time Eclipse sees the dropins folder it may not actually load anything from it.
The second time it will actually see the plugins in the dropins folder and try to load them into the class path.
This information came from IBM support for another Eclipse based editor tool, not RDI or RDB.
