Re: [p2-dev] Nested repositories and backward compatibility

We have no plan to add the support for composite repositories in 3.4.x since this is new work and it still needs some polish (it just got committed a bit before Christmas).
Also the code for those repos is located in the repository bundles and as such it can not simply be deployed in 3.4 install without patching it with new bundles, unless of course you are willing to take the create new bundles out of the code for use in 3.4.

[p2-dev] Nested repositories and backward compatibility




Hi,
In an earlier discussion about repository aggregation, Pascal mentioned
that p2 now supports nested repositories. We would like to exploit that,
at least for the ArtifactRepositories that we make available but that
begs the question; what happens with backward compatibility with Eclipse
3.4.x? Will nested repositories be made available in 3.4.2? If not, will
there be some way to install them into a profile using a 3.5 installer
so that they can be used by Eclipse 3.4.x?

Regards,
Thomas Hallgren
