Re: [p2-dev] Equinox P2 executable updates

Hi,
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 pages.

Hello,

For an Eclipse based product that has the following content:

eclipse/
      configuration/
      dropins/
      features/
      jre/
      p2/
      plugins/
      readme
folder1/
folder2/

is it possible to install updates that will be installed in folder1/ or folder2/ ?
Equinox P2 can run updates that are actually .exe files and not only eclipse folder will be updated, but also files from folder1/ or folder2/ ?


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?

Thank you,
Daniela Prodan
