Re: [p2-dev] Support for Registration Page

We are probably saying the same thing - the option that IMO is not good is requiring registration to read the repository and get the artifacts. If registration happens when installing, or delayed until first use of what was installed depends on the use case - both are valid, and there are probably cases where one or the other type of registration is not possible (for instance installing a "ready to run" zip where registration should be performed on first use vs. installing a headless app where registration on first use is not possible).

Shouldn't registration happen when you install? Many installers that I've been using has this as a final step. You can be fairly certain that you're on-line when installing and it's likely that you have some kind of UI (or at least a shell), but perhaps that doesn't apply when you run it the first time. I'm thinking headless products meant to be run as part of a build, or things running as a service, etc.

I would go with the "when being run" option as that makes it possible to get each actual install as opposed to one registration for someone that aggregates and redistributes...

They are looking for sales leads. 

There seems to be two options: 1) have them register beforehand and then use https  or 2) register the user thru a locking mechanism when the code is run.

Any other options I might be missing

p2 does not have such support.

What are they trying to achieve with by having their user registered?
- Protection so other can't install it?
- Sales lead?
- ?

Until now most of the solution I have seen involve registering the user when the code is run.

I am working with some people who want to promote commercial products using the Marketplace Client.   One thing they would like to do is require a user to register for the product before installing.   Is this possible with p2 and can anyone point me to documentation or examples.

btw, I have seen people use the basic https username/password but I am looking for something that is more a standard registration page for new users.

Thanks
Ian
