|Re: [p2-dev] GSoC application|
Hi Max and congratulation for being accepted to GSoC.
Simon and I have been discussing this over lunch and came up with several approaches.
2) If the browser is in an external process, there is a trick you can use to communicate to a local eclipse client by communicating with a web server who would be listening on a particular port. However Simon is worried that this could be a security hole.
3) If the browser is an external process, an install description file could be downloaded and then the user could drag&drop it over the install he is interested in, or we could have an OS handler registered with eclipse for the file and thus present the user with the eclipse install he has.
I'm sure there are other solution and invite you or other to submit ideas keeping in mind that one of the issue we have is that there could be several instances of eclipse running on a machine and one needs to be identified (this is for example the difficulty of approach #2).
