Re: [p2-dev] ECF p2 repos are missing


I've opened a bug to fetch the ECF bundles via p2IU instead of a GET in the map files.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=328837

Even with this change, we still require a stable ECF repository URL.  Moving the ECF repository that was consumed in previous releases means that our map files for this release are no longer valid.   In the Eclipse/Equinox project, we archive our old release directories (zips etc)  but retain the p2 release repositories and the associated URL.

We would like to move to a model where we build all our bundles with our builder, produce a p2 repo, and the ECF filetransfer bundles are consumed by the platform from that repo.  That seems doable to me...as it should be possible for the platform releng to simply read/retrieve the relevant (filetransfer) bundles from out of the repo created by our builder....rather than what we are doing now with map file entries...which is clumsy, error prone all around, and costly for us.


If the platform switches to p2IU map file entries, then they would be able to get either specific versions from a repo, or the latest from the repo ... the URL would still need to be stable, but doesn't have to be as specific (with composite repos) as the curret HTTP GET.  ex:

plugin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx=p2IU,id=org.eclipse.emf.ecore,version=,repository=http://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo

You could even provide a composite repo specifically for platform consumption.  Promoting a build for the platform to use would just mean mirroring it in.


Sounds great.  Thanks for the clarification.

Scott
