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

Which trigger would you use to show the message? When the IUs you are installing have very wide version ranges, then any combination or install / update / uninstall could happen as the result of modifying a profile (installing, removing or updating).
It seems to me that what you are after is something that can recognize what a "product" is and can reason about it.

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




Could you add something simple like a flag in the UI to differentiate between:

"Add new plugins to existing target folder (replace any existing,
updated plugins with newer; keep other unaffected files; merge new
content into existing artifacts.xml)"
vs.
"Replace existing target folder if exists with new plugins (delete
existing folder and start fresh)"

Admittedly, the text above is too verbose for a simple UI flag, but
you get the idea. Perhaps we need a short flag ("merge into existing
target" vs. "replace existing target") and a tooltip w/ description
explanation?

The benefit, naturally, would be that the user could chose whether to
do an additive or destructive install, and know immediately what to
expect when done.
