Re: [p2-dev] Generating categories and populating them from a master feature

I'm not sure the best way to remove a category.  That seems like a good feature to have.

For creating categories, adding features, and publishing them, you should look at the category publisher:  (This will essentially inject category information into your repository).

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Publisher#Category_Publisher

You should be able to create a category file New -> Plug-in Development -> Category definition.

If you need a hand, let me know.

cheers,

Hey-o Folks,

I'm currently building e4 from a master feature (which gives me a p2
repo with one category).  What is the recommended way to generate a
useful repo that the client can consume?

1) I need to get rid of the master category with its one master feature

2) I need to add 5 or 6 categories

3) I need to add some of my main features to the new categories

For #1 and #3, Is there some way to modify the p2 repo generation
using p2.inf files with the features in question?

What's the best way to add the categories for #2

Later,
PW
