Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] p2 provisioned eclipse missing companion library

Pascal,

Thanks for the pointers. The eclipse.ini as well as other files are indeed being dropped down by p2. Perhaps this is an issue that relates to the metadata generator producing output that is not expected. How and when did you last generate the p2 metadata you are running against?

Here's what I see for the toolingorg.eclipse.launcher...'s touchpoints:

<touchpoint id="native" version="1.0.0"/>
<touchpointData size="1">
  <instructions size="2">
    <instruction key="uninstall">
            cleanupzip(source:@artifact, target:${installFolder});
    </instruction>
    <instruction key="install">
            unzip(source:@artifact, target:${installFolder});
    </instruction>
  </instructions>
</touchpointData>

And for the org.eclipse.launcher...'s touchpoints:

<touchpoint id="native" version="1.0.0"/>
(and that's it)

Is there a public "known good" p2 site that I can validate against? It looks like the milestone site still doesn't have p2 format data available.

From what I'm seeing, the currently checked-in metadata generator is not including the addProgramArg instructions to the org.eclipse.launcher... IUs' touchpoints as should be indicated by the code in EclipseInstallGenerator. I will continue digging but I am curious what version of the generator others are using to perform their testing.

I've tested regenerating the meta using the current code against both an Eclipse 3.3 as well as 3.4M4 build with the same result.

Thanks,
Tim

John and I have been doing that since M3 (some hickups of course occured)
and that worked and I confirm that yesterday's build works as well.
However we are deploying a 3.4 eclipse and not a 3.3.
Normally when p2 installs the SDK, a -startup and -launcher.library
arguments are being set to point ot the jar.


You say: In our eclipse.ini file we drop down next to the exe,
Do you actually drop the ini file? If so this is the pb. The ini files are
no longer file that you lay down. Instead they result from the installation
of some IUs (for example, see the toolingorg.eclipse.equinox.launcher IU)


HTH,

|[equinox-dev] [prov] p2 provisioned eclipse missing companion library |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|





Are others having success using p2 to provision an Eclipse where the cache directory is not collocated with the eclipse exe?

I'm running into an issue where despite having what appears to be the
right set of software downloaded in the cache, configured in the
platform.xml / config.ini, etc., each time I try to run the
eclipse.exe, I receive "The eclipse executable launcher was unable to
locate its companion launcher jar."  In looking through the C code for
the launcher, it looks like Eclipse is designed to search for the
companion library in the plugins area, located near the exe, or by
specifying --launcher.library on the command line.  In our eclipse.ini
file we drop down next to the exe, I don't see a --launcher.library
argument configured.  Is this something that should be setup by
default in the normal touchpoints?  Or, is there a branch of the
Eclipse.exe that is designed to work better with p2-style deployments?

Thanks,
Tim
