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

Ideally you would use the publisher ant tasks directly in your build.  If you are building features and bundles then you should use that particular ant task. In the end you will have the bits on disk + the repositories.

As for backwards compatible, this is not a publisher vs. generator question, this is a question of whether our metadata is compatible from 3.4 to 3.5.  Pascal, do you know?

That is good news. I will use it as soon as it is documented. I am assuming that I can create a site to install from using this. Correct?
I guess that means I would do something like
- export feature and plugins to a directory
- run the publisher to create a site
- install into sdk using new site.

So the next question is if it is totally backward compatible with the metadata generator or do I have to regenerate all my test sites? The sites were all created using 3.5.

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
