Re: [p2-dev] Equivalent of Update Policy for P2

Here you are focusing on a particular limitation of the director application whose behavior could be argued to be correct :-) Currently the behavior you get is the same than if you had in the UI "added the repos", and then installed the IU listed on the command line.
As for avoiding reaching mirrors specified for a particular repo, there are two ways. Either you are in control of the repo in which case you don't add to the artifact repo the information on mirrors, or you are not and you can set the VM arg "eclipse.p2.mirrors" to false. Still if you have multiple artifact repos, they will all be consulted before p2 gives up on dl.

Re: [p2-dev] Equivalent of Update Policy for P2




Or, to put it another way... how are policy files [1] handled in p2? How can you force p2 to use only a specific mirror, rather than all the available mirrors?

[p2-dev] Equivalent of Update Policy for P2

Hi All,


In 3.3 I could ensure that users could only update features from our internal mirror sites. Can anyone explain how I would do this with P2? (This seems like a gaping hole.)


Thanks,


Miles
