Re: [p2-dev] Is there a way to group features together: some kind of abstraction

hi Pradeep,

have you tried to create p2 category?

You can create category in one step and then add new features to it by changing repository metadata at any time.
I'm not sure what with updates, but at least when installing a p2 category from p2 UI, user is able to modify each features separately later.

You can read some more about categories at http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Customizing_Metadata

hi ,

Can we group two or more features together, so that instead of
installing  several features from a p2-repo, user can install only one
The problem is that the grouped features are not depending on each
other:- they should be able to managed independently using p2-API
after the installation.

just that we have to provide a better abstraction to the user.

thanks in advance.
