Re: [p2-dev] EclipseInstallAction and ProductAction

This is one of the goal for 3.5 to prove that the publisher story is working.

Re: [p2-dev] EclipseInstallAction and ProductAction




Thanks Ian. This was very helpful. Would it be correct to assume that you aim to publish the IDE itself as a product some time going forward?

      The product action simply publishes a .product file (and I think it does the executables). Nothing More! If you want to publish a product you will likely publish your plugins, features, (categories maybe) and the .product file. This will likely be part of your build process.

      The EclipseInstallAction, as the name implies, publishes an Eclipse Install. It grovels around on disk, looking in known places for known things and tries to publish them. This is extremely brittle and not really useful in a build process.

      So in summary, the EclipseInstallAction was created because we had to start from somewhere, but going forward, the publisher action is what you should likely be using.

        Hi,
        I'm trying to understand the difference between the EclipseInstallAction and the ProductAction. From where I stand, the Eclipse IDE is a product and to have two actions should be redundant. Can someone please shed some light on the current design? I'm trying to learn how to leverage the publisher the best way possible.
