Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] peer-to-peer downloads (ECF)

Peer to peer is not on the 1.0 feature list.
However with the ability to discover repositories through zeroconf/bonjour
that Scott is working on
(http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/equinox-dev/msg03609.html) and the
adaptative download technology / mirroring support that Tim is working on
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=207802), scenarios like
these should be easy to put together.

In your particular case, the LAN repo announces its availability, p2
clients notice it and add it to the list of mirrors. When a download
request occurs the download strategy picks the "best" repo and therefore
choose the LAN one. It is also interesting to note that if the clients were
to announce their repositories (everything downloaded by the client is
stored in the form of a repository), then you would obtain an even more
peer-to-peer'ish experience.

HTH,

Will p2/ECF enable peer to peer downloads?

The scenario I'm thinking of is a Branch that has to upgrade to a new
release of the application. It would make a lot of sense to have just
one (or two) machine act as gateway to the wan and have the others get
the upgrade from the lan.
This should work without configuration overhead (spontaneously!)

Thanks and best regards,
Sandro
