Re: [equinox-dev] [p2] Relocatability

To get relative path you need to specify the path to the bundle pool by
passing in the argument -bundlepool. Currently we only support well the
case where the bundlepool and the destination are set to the same value.
In case you want to provision from within the install you are moving around
you need to set the -roaming option at install time.

The intent displayed in 200228 is fine. I made a left hand turn somewhere.
When I look at bundles.txt for the admin demo it has relative paths but
when I look at bundles.txt that was generated for an install that I did it
has absolute paths. What do I have to change in my properties when
installing to make this work correctly? I was running a standalone director
application and don't have the benefit of Susan's UI.

This is incorrect. The resolution of
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=204041 and
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=200228 has been done to allow
for installations to be moved. However like in the past, this will only be
doable under certain constraints, one of which being to locate the bundle
pool under the eclipse folder (at least with the current design).

Also, as eclipse grows with having more dependencies on non bundle things
(and other things depends on eclipse), I think that moving an eclipse
instance will become more and more brittle, and reconciliation may just be
a safer path.
