Re: [p2-dev] Publisher vs. generator/director

You should transition to the publisher (it will be the tool moving forward, and we could use the help with bug reports, etc...).  I like the question "Are there docs I'm missing"?  I think the question should be "Are the docs missing" and the answer is yes.  Docs are now on my todo list. :)

You should be able to run the features and bundle publisher and point to a director (-source) containing /features and /plugins. When you use the director to install you use -installIU (not -root). I don't think we create a single IU that holds all the IUs.

Hi,

In 3.4.x, we in Fedora used the EclipseGenerator app to generate
metadata and then used the director app to install it.

In 3.5, should we use FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher?

I tried using the publisher with the director it and although it
generates metadata seemingly fine, the director fails when given the
same "-root".  What am I doing wrong?  Is there a publisher equivalent
to the director app?  Are there docs I'm missing?

Thanks,

Andrew
