FWIW,

If you would rather add your plugins using the Eclipse Update Site feature, you can easily create an Update site through RDI or a matching version of Eclipse.

This site has a few good tutorials for creating an Eclipse P2 repository (Update Site) and adding your plugins to it.
http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/EclipseP2Update/article.html

You will need to use the same version of Eclipse to create the plugin update site. A P2 update site can be used by RDI 9.5 and above.
From what I've found, prior versions of Eclipse use a different repository setup.
To get an update site that works with RDI 9.1 you would just need to create the update site using RDI 9.1.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Upgrade to 9.5.1 kept my plugin

I have an RDi install at work and one at home.
My work install has my home grown plugin .jar file in ../plugins (I know, not recommended). At home, I put it into ../dropins to test out the recommendation. (I had to create that folder).

When I upgraded the work copy from 9.5.0.3 to 9.5.1, my plugin was erased from the ../plugins folder (as is typical). But when I upgraded my home copy from 9.5.0.2 to 9.5.1, the upgrade left my plugin in ../dropins intact.

So... if you write a plugin, put it in ../dropins and it will survive an upgrade.
