|[equinox-dev] [p2] Relocatability|
It would seem based on the latest resolved bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=204041 that there is no plan to make the install and workspace images relocatable. This would be a regression from previous update. With the previous update all features were referenced in the platform.xml relative to platform://base. We also had platform://configuration. These locations were resolved at runtime so it was possible to use a mounted image. If the workspace and user sites were relative to the configuration it was also possible to have a mounted workspace. For p2 we seem to be using absolute paths. Do I need to open a bug or is this work scheduled? We have use cases that require the ability to mount the user workspace and the install image. We are currently doing this on eclipse 3.2 with a few restrictions.
