Adding Eclipse plugins to your Lotus Notes installs

Many may not know this but you can optimize your install kits prior to deploying the new Notes 8.5 client.  Check out the Domino Administrator help for how to use the addToKit tool to have Eclipse features and plug-ins automatically installed when the product is installed.  This is a great way to deploy plug-ins without using things like Widgets or Composite Applications which would require the end user to restart the Notes process.

  1. Does it help if Notes is already installed? We never had an installation requirement so far where Lotus Notes was not already installed. In all cases, Notes was already there and the admins and users were very confused about the restart prompt after a plugin installation (even if plugins were installed silently via policy).
