Re: [p2-dev] Platform agnostic profile

My use case for platform agnosticism in profiles is a target to be run via the servlet bridge (i.e. an equinox instance running in servlet container).

Ok, let's step back. Even if you were able to resolve, doing an actual installation of all the IU is impossible since there will be actions that are platform specific that can't be successfully run (e.g. window registry key setting on a linux box).

The code we introduced in M5 (org.eclipse.equinox.p2.repository.tools) goes over a set of repositories and "massage" the artifacts and the resulting massaged artifacts are then passed to PDE Build as a target. Again this work at the artifact repo level and as such does not consider the metadata dependencies (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=264267) which is why it can be of help.

I want to create a target platform (or product) that can be used cross-platform. I'm not sure how massaging repositories can make that happen. Is the PDE build removing platform constraints from the IU's before installing them?

            are massaged by PDE to make the plug-in available in a
            "compilable" form. This is probably what you are looking for.

            I need it to create a target platform that can be used for
            building products that can run on all platforms. It is
            essential to us (and everyone else that creates similar
            products) that the platform based discrimination is
            performed by OSGi at runtime and not at install time.

                                    I would like to create a platform
                                    agnostic profile. I.e. a profile that
                                    would accept IU's regardless of
                                    platform filters. The analogy
                                    (which I
                                    think is impossible at present)
                                    would be to describe the current
                                    delta-pack as a feature and
                                    install it so that all it's
                                    bundles are
                                    installed.

                                    Is it possible to create such a
                                    profile? Can the PROP_ENVIRONMENT
                                    accept
                                    wildcards?
