Re: [p2-dev] Can I do the Automatic Discovery & Update with Equinox p2?

Hi Scott,
 
Thank you so much for the reply! I look into the ECF documentation you referred to. I have little idea what ECF is targeting for. However, with the promising evolution of p2, it looks that we gonna have much better and better things! That's great! It's great! Have a great weekend! :-)
 
Best Regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

There is an enhancement request to add ECF's discovery API (and some discovery provider implementation) to network discover p2 repositories in the Eclipse ui:  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=218534

In recent interactions with Susan (leading the p2 UI effort), it seems likely that this capability will be inserted in 3.5 M5 timeframe.

Here is ECF's discovery API documentation:  http://wiki.eclipse.org/ECF_API_Docs

I (Scott) have also created a couple of example apps that use discovery API to publish and then discover available services.  I've also worked on one for p2 discovery and then p2-based remote install scenarios for Code9.

So I guess the upshot is:  p2 will soon do this (network-based discovery at least)...but network discovery is not present as of 3.4.X stream.

Hey! After going through a lot of p2 marketing, I am still not clear if we can have the Automatic Discovery & Update of RCP application with p2.

Could someone please show me some clues if we can do it? Any hint is highly appreciated!

Thanks so much!
Frank
