Re: [p2-dev] Touchpoint advice files on features and products


These changes are in org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.  Existing integration for generating p2 metadata during build and export still uses org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.generator.
At this point, to use the new code during a build, you need to call the publisher directly.  I do believe the publisher is used for dropins and when working with old update sites.

Unfortunately, I don't believe there is much documentation for the publisher, and I'm not clear on the details of how to call it.

[p2-dev] Touchpoint advice files on features and products






I just wanted to let p2 developers know that the touchpoint advice file (p2.inf) can now be added to features and products as of 3.5 M4. This allows you to specify additional touchpoint instructions at the feature or product level (such as creating sym-links, setting program/JVM properties, etc). There are some automated tests for this, but it hasn't been put into use in our own features and products yet. Please enter bugs if you try this out and encounter problems. I have added more details to the touchpoint instructions wiki page:


http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Engine/Touchpoint_Instructions#Authoring_touchpoint_data


For more details see the bug report: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=256037
