Re: [p2-dev] RE: Installing eclipse from the command line


I've been on holiday for a couple of weeks and just catching up on this.  I can confirm you should get the same behaviour with the director application as the installer, since they both under the covers call the same p2 API to perform the install. I know this works because we use the director application ourselves during the eclipse project build to produce the zip files you see on the download page. Perhaps your command line for calling the director is missing something. Can you send along the exact command line you are using?  I think you already know this, but you should be using the "org.eclipse.sdk.ide" product IU as the root when performing the install.

Folks,
 
Sorry to keep banging on about this - but does anyone have any idea why eclipse installation fails using the director application?
 
Thanks,
 
Miles

[p2-dev] RE: Installing eclipse from the command line


I should add that I have tried using the P2 director app as described here:
 
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_director_application#Installing_a_complete_product
 
All I end up with is a p2 folder with 4 subdirectories containing various bit of metadata:
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.repository

 
I was expecting a complete, runnable eclipse install. What am I doing wrong?
 
Thanks,
 
Miles

[p2-dev] Installing eclipse from the command line


Hi All,
 
I have tried the P2 installer to install eclipse from a local Ganymede mirror. Is it possible to do the same but non-interactively, without a UI, from a script?
 
Thanks,
 
Miles
