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

The installer is written to create a full blown install and this is probably the core of the problem. When you install your EMF thing then it removes the SDK product which causes the root files and such to disappear. If instead you had created an EMF product (or referenced an existing one) then this problem would have not occurred.
Anyway, these are hypothesis and bug reports would be appreciated.

Thx

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
