RE: [p2-dev] No repository found containing...

Hi Henrik,
 
Before each test I removed all the sites, restarted eclipse and added them back, then refreshed. How could I get a stale site.xml? How could I remove such stale files?
 
Thanks,

Hi,
A possible cause could be that p2 looks for index files in a particular order, and once a particular index file has been selected, subsequent checks if the update site has been modified may not detect changes. (Have to search for the bug #, but this is being corrected). There is no issue if all index files gets touched when changes take place. (You would typically be hit by this issue if there is a stale site.xml that was loaded by a p2 client at some point.

Could that be the case here?

Folks,
 
Just noticed something interesting whilst testing an internal P2 repo. I was trying to install everything from the site but kept getting the infamous "No repository found containing...". So I deleted the site p2 metadata (content and artifacts) leaving just the site.xml. I then removed the site from the list, added it back and refreshed. I then tried the install again. This time it was successful.
 
I have noticed this before, which leads me to suppose that the p2 metadata generator generates metadata differently from the way this is done when one loads a site which has no p2 meta in it. I just thought you would find this interesting.
