Thanks a lot for the reply. I will have a look at those documents and get back to you, if I need further information. ;)

Not only is this possibly, it should be remarkably easy :-) (this was one of the big design points behind p2). Also, if it is an OSGi based system you want to provision into, you can likely use the existing eclipse tool support (some of which is still being developed).
Essentially you need to create p2 based repositories for your bundles (and features). This can be done in Eclipse using the export wizard. Once done, you can use the director  to install the bundles into your system.
If you are building an RCP application, then you could even reuse the great install UI that Susan has been working on. If it is not an RCP application, you can still use the director and possibly even the console commands .
(Note: There is not much at the second link, feel free to add more content to the wiki :-) )
Here is my scenario. I have a system based on equinox framework and I am planning to provide provisioning capabilities to that system using p2-agent. In the repository, there will be several features and users should be able download and install them using p2-agent. Is it possible to use p2-agent in non-eclipse based systems? If so what are pre-requisites for using p2-agent?\
Thanks in advance
