Default Managing Eclipse Plugins

Hi People,

I just wondered if anyone had an suggestions on how to manage Eclipse
plugins where RPMS don't exist for the particular plugin. In this case
Aptana. Using the instructions here
http://www.aptana.com/docs/index.php/Plugging_Aptana_into_an_existing_Eclipse_configura tion
I can install the plugin manually to /usr/share/eclipse so that its
available to all users on the box. But I need to install this plugin on
a high number of machines. I know I could install it on a single
machine and then tar up /usr/share/eclipse and turn this into an rpm.
But I think this will be asking for trouble in the long run.

So I then did some research and found that I should be able to use
eclipse update manager from the command line see
Thinking that perhaps I could use a script to do the install or use a
script to create an RPM. But so far I can't get any of the Eclipse
Update Manager commands to work. Asking on some eclipse Newsgroups has
got a couple of cryptic responses. So I thought I would ask if anyone
had ideas about the best way to achieve what I am after. Also if anyone
uses the Eclipse Update Manager from the command line and can give me an
example of a command line that works, it would be much appreciated.
