|[p2-dev] P2 Support for Native Binary Installs|
First, kudos to all involved with P2. You all have created a very powerful framework for provisioning. Thanks!
P2 has been very helpful in provisioning Eclipse IUs (features, plugins, etc…). I would like to begin using it to provision non-Eclipse IUs such as native binary installations (ie: MSI, InstallAnywhere). The idea is to use P2 to transport the native binary installer and invoke a custom touchpoint to invoke the native installer.
I have read that P2 can be extended to support non-Eclipse IUs. Has anyone tried this? Any resources (blogs, articles) of reference would be appreciated.
