Re: [p2-dev] p2 headless and rcp feature

Ok, it looks like 'org.eclipse.equinox.p2.user.ui' satisfies the RCP usecase I was thinking of.

The core usecase is still open for discussion, but we'll leave that to the bug.

The product issue you talk about is a long standing limitation that probably won't be address until the next release cycle.

Thanks Pascal.

I think the steps proposed by Andrew are here to palliate the fact that the product editor does not allow for a mixed mode of feature and plugin or at least the import of plug-ins from a feature already defined when used in plugin mode.

[p2-dev] p2 headless and rcp feature




Howdy p2 team,

Have we considered adding a "rcp" feature? I know there has been some discussion of a headless/core feature in this bug:
ÂÂÂ
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=262332

The reason I ask is because we don't have a good story to tell people right now if they want to add "update" functionality to their RCP applications. This is also evident by Andrew's blog post (
http://aniefer.blogspot.com/2008/06/example-headless-build-for-rcp-product.html)... it would be much easier to say "Add this p2 RCP feature" to your product than add these plug-ins and hit "Add Required Plug-ins".

Note that we had this same problem in the past with Update. I believe update.configurator only shipped with the RCP feature and if you needed Update functionality, you would add update.core/ui and that's it. This is more complicated with p2 now and having something like a feature would really make things easier.

Anyone else have comments on this issue and how we effect our downstream adopters?

Cheers,
