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

I tried to use the installer to install EMF into the Eclipse SDK and
hit a bit of a brick wall:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Installer#Non-working_Example

The properties file is still on the server, located here:
http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emf/updates/emf-core-sdk-installer.properties

But when I try to install EMF into the same location as the Eclipse
SDK, it removes the stuff EMF doesn't explicitly reference (eg., *.so
and the eclipse executable itself). Ultimately, I end up with
artifacts.xml and plugins/*.jar, for the EMF install, but it can't be
started because there's no ./eclipse to run.

I concluded the installer is only for *product* installs, not
*project* installs. Is that correct? If not, please disillusion me and
correct the wiki accordingly. :)

Thanks,

Nick
