RE: [p2-dev] Mirroring to proxy repositories

Terry,
 
I have noticed that, if you abort p2 download/install it remembers what it was doing. The next time you try to update or install anything it starts trying to download/install the old list first - even if you have removed the source sites from the P2 UI!
 
Is this behaviour intentional? (The only way to stop it is to delete your workspace - I have not worked out which files in particular are involved.)

Subject: Re: [p2-dev] Mirroring to proxy repositories

p2 caches the past repositories from which it has grabbed things.  I'm not sure if there is a way to flush that out.  I've been working on using the p2 director application to push out synchronized releases of Eclipse.  I'm invoking the p2 director app with the "-configuration" parameter set to an empty temporary folder to ensure that I don't pick up repositories from past runs.

Hi All,
 
This message mentions a mirror merging feature. Is this documented somewhere? I am using the 3.5M3 version of the metadata and artifact mirror apps. The only docs I can find are in the help:
 
 
Thanks,

Subject: [p2-dev] Mirroring to proxy repositories

Hi all,

I seem to remember the subject was discussed somewhere, but can't find the thread back. At the moment, we use the mirrorApp to mirror something like 10 public repositories (that's why I noticed and logged the bug about non-working merging feature that was corrected in the 3.5M3).

The mirroring works fine (still not using the merging, though).  But there's a problem : when I add the mirrored repository URL to my eclipse installation where I deleted all other repositories entries, I always end up having many repositories listed from the net.

The thing is: in the end, we wan't our developers to declare a unique Eclipse P2 repository that they'll use to update or install "supported" software... And at the moment, they could download it from the net directly and obtain a version we didn't test...

I guess those URL comes from the already installed plugins/features. So, how could we wipe them out, or ignore them or proxy them through our mirror every necessary time (and stop new mirrors from appearing automatically in the update interface...).

Is this something considered possible with P2? If so, could you please let me know how to do that?

Thanks a lot.
Cheers.
