Re: [p2-dev] Equinox P2 executable updates
I don't understand your question regarding installing into the folders
you call "folder1" and "folder2" - what is it you want to install there?
In general, p2 can install and manage files placed almost anywhere.
But more specifically, the Eclipse SDK is installed stand alone with
the layout you have described. It can also be installed in shared mode
- then the p2 and plugins/features are found in a common location that
is shared by several installations.
You can start installation using one of: the IDE itself, the
director.app (inside the IDE, but available in headless fashion), or
using the p2-installer. All of these are documented on the p2 wiki

Equinox P2 can run updates that are actually .exe files and not only
eclipse folder will be updated, but also files from folder1/ or
And how the Equinox P2 manages updates that are executables? Runs
the .exe file in background, in the command line? Or it can run
the .exe file and start the graphic interface for that update and
the user can go on with the installation?
