Re: [p2-dev] Latest readme for sdk

I thought we were suppose to be able to generate the metadata on the fly. How is this different?

Yes, this is still accurate, although the title should now say "Eclipse 3.4 or greater". Accurate metadata is required to correctly resolve the patch.

[p2-dev] Latest readme for sdk




This is in the latest readme for 0611-1540

Feature patches can only be installed from Eclipse 3.4-based update sites
Feature patches can only be installed from update sites designed for Eclipse 3.4
or greater. Specifically, the update site must have the necessary metadata for
Equinox p2 (a content.xml or content.jar file). This data can be generated by
building an update site using Eclipse 3.4 or newer, or running the p2 metadata
generator on an update site built using earlier versions of the Eclipse SDK.
See the help topic Generating p2 metadata for more details on running the p2
metadata generator (bug 244483).


Does this still apply?
