Subject Re: Testing the eclipse update site

I always tended to think that the tools probably have to include another copy of the runtime
since UIMA does not play too nicely with OSGi. I never quite understood why I would want to
install a "runtime" when I could actually run any AE from within Eclipse - mind that was before
there was the launcher plugin (which I still have to try out).
