Ciao Borislav :)
I'm just a humble user of p2, Pascal, John or Ian will be better suited
to answer such architectural questions.

Subject: Re: [p2-dev] p2 installer trouble

Actually i am not trying to just have an installed eclipse here. I
wanted to see how two eclipse instances with a shared bundle pool manage
the install of bundles with dependencies. I'll explain further my
question. 
For example we have two eclipse instances E1 and E2. E1 downloads to the
repository installs a bundle with dependency to another bundle that is
also downloaded and installed. E1's bundle.info is updated, here i guess
that the artifact.xml in the pool is also updated. So now we go to E2
and check its "Available Software" there we should see the first bundle.
We try to install it, what i am asking is whether E2 will also "know"
about that dependency and install both the bundles?(1) So basically i
also ask does the artifact.xml of the repository contain the bundle
dependencies, so that multiple different instances can see these
dependencies and resolve them during install?(2)

Also i am curious about the update procedure. We have E1 and E2 both up
and running and using different sets of bundles from the shared pool.
These sets of bundles has common bundles. When E1 starts and update and
updates all its bundles. I guess E2 will "see" the updated common
bundles after restart?(3) Will there be any trouble if an updated bundle
has a dependency to some other bundle and when E2 starts using this
updated bundle will the dependency be resolved or will E2 has knowledge
of this other bundle and from where?(4)

So for now these 4 questions trouble my mind :) If you need more info
about them write me and i'll try to explain further.

Best Regards
Borislav

	Hm, not sure what's going on there, whereever you click on
	http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo/, you'll get a 404.
	Not sure there is much you can do at this point, maybe
eclipse.org is
	not ready for this kind of usage?
	
	You could revert to downloading the SDK the old way, as a zip,
from
	here:
	
http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.5-200906111540/i
	ndex.php
<http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.5-200906111540/
i%0Andex.php> 
	
	These installations are roaming installations, but have no extra
bundle
	pool that could be shared across products...
	
	HTH,
	Ciao, hh

	Thanks for the fast reply.
	So can you please tell what repo/installer.properties should i
use in
	this case? Or if there is other way to perform a "shared
install"(not
	with the p2 installer)?
	
	Best Regards

	Ah, I see, there is no artifact repo published at
	http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo (/artifacts.jar)
	Hm, I'm sure there is a good reason for that, but at least
	install.properties in the installer drop needs to be fixed to
	reflect
	the new repos,
	also, the arguments look a lot like 3.4 arguments...
	
	HTH,
	Ciao, hh

	Ciao Borislav :)
	Try using "http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo";
	instead..

	Hi,
	
	I tried to use the p2 installer posted here:
	
	
	
http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/drops/I20090714-0800/index.php
	and here:
	
	
	
http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/drops/R-3.5-200906111540/index.php
	
	
	
<http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/drops/R-3.5-200906111540/index.php>
	and i failed to have it run successfully. I want to perform a
	"Shared
	install". When i select the destination and the shared install
	option i
	go with "install" and the installation fails with the error logs
	i
	attached to this mail - the two logs are from the different
	versions i
	used, but the result is the same. I use the default
	installer.propeties,
	i attached them too. It seems there is no repository at the
	default
	location.
	How can i solve this issue and is there another way to perform a
	"shared
	install"? Or can you give a link with a correct repository that
	i can
	use?
	
	Best Regards
	Borislav
