Re: [p2-dev] instances/examples for server-side install?

Hi Scott, I don't know of anyone who has tried using the installer bundle in a server-side context. This doesn't really surprise me since the installer code as it is today is closely tied to a standalone client GUI installer. Perhaps on the server side people are using the director application instead?

Re: [p2-dev] instances/examples for server-side install?

Hi Folks,

Surprisingly, I haven't received any replies to this request.  Isn't
anyone creating on-the-net meta-data/artifact repos that could be used
to create an install properties file for their IUs?

Perhaps the publisher is able to do this now for existing features? (I
haven't looked yet...my apologies in advance if this is silly).

If there isn't someone already doing this, I will look to do it myself
(probably for ECF bundles initially), and make available for some
testing that I'm going to do with p2-enabled/Equinox servlets I've been
