Re: [p2-dev] Problem running P2 director application

The p2 director != p2 metadata generator. They perform two different functions. Director is for installing software; generator is for turning an update site into a p2 repo (with artifacts.jar and content.jar).

See:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Metadata_Generator
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_director_application

If you want examples of how to use the generator beyond what's in the wiki, let me know - I have several, including a script to generate site.xml so your features are in a category.

It seems that the director app cannot be  found in my P2 installation.
I'm using P2 equinox-p2-agent-3.5M2-linux.tar.gz.

Do I have to separately download the director app?
