Re: [buckminster-dev] different update site for a plugin


The site feature should only contain the features that you want in your site:

this is our setup:

importtargetdefinition '-A' '${WORKSPACE}/com.remainsoftware.td.releng.feature/TDOMS Base Target Hudson.target'
import '${WORKSPACE}/com.remainsoftware.td.releng.feature/oms_all.cquery'
perform '-Q' '-D' 'target.os=*' '-D' 'target.ws=*' '-D' 'target.arch=*' '-Dcbi.include.source=false' 'com.remainsoftware.td.releng.feature#site.p2'

This "releng" feature only contains other features (no bundles) and only the features that we want in our update site. 

By the way, we also save the resolved target platform because that contains all the foreign features. we give this to customers that cannot go to the internet to resolve the dependencies.

Hi Folk!

I'm not sure if this is the proper place to ask this, and I bet that the
answer is in the book, but I'm missing something.  Feel free to direct
me to a better place to ask (this is a userland question, not a dev
question, but I didn't see a -user list, and am not a big fan of forums).

The situation is:  I'm successfully building a product (based on an
existing plugin/feature), replete with update site, using bucky.  (Super
stoked, cool stuff, big thank you to the lightning project for putting
its headless build out with the blog entry)

Now I want a separate update site for the vanilla plugin/feature alone.

I created a feature for the site, but it's including all the plugins the
core plugin depends on, and I only want the core plugin itself.

I've tried this-- http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/645079/
of deal, but no dice, I still see the same plugins that are in
the product build.

Basically, I have an plugin that I've been providing as a "normal"
eclipse plugin, which I've (thanks to buckminster) successfully created
a headless product build for, which I would now like to offer the "old
way" I was doing it, an update site containing just my feature, and not
all of it's dependencies.

I feel I'm missing something obvious, which is par for the course, and
now I'll probably figure it out 5 minutes after I send this (although I
probably jinxed that by saying it aloud), but there it is.

Well, even if I just get directed to the forums-- props to the
buckminster team, it's a great project!
