Re: [p2-dev] How to add a new feature to an existing repository?

Thank you so much, Paul/Brian/Shenol, for you kind advices. It works fine now. I ran the build to append the new features to the existing repository and then started categoryPublisher to generate the category for the whole repository.
I'm just wondering whether the feature version number in the file category.xml can be more generic. Our feature version contains a time stamp which keeps changing in each build. I need to manually change the version number in category.xml before running it. Hope I can set a generic version number. But this is not a big deal.

Best Regards

Hello Samuel,

The point is not to do the features and category publishing as one step. J What I mean is to do it in two:
You can implement the two steps as two ant tasks, running back to back, in your build. You have already written the task for the feature publisher, now just do the same for the category publishing.

Hi Shenol,

Can you please advise how to pass a source repository to the categoryPublisher? The current syntax documented is as the following. It doesn't contain a source repository.

-console -consolelog -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.CategoryPublisher
-metadataRepository file:/<repo location>/repository
-categoryDefinition file:/home/irbull/workspaces/p2/mail/category.xml
-categoryQualifier
-compress

Hello Samuel,


I think that the features and bundles publisher does not take into account the
site.xml, but the update site publisher does. As it takes arguments similar to the features and bundles publisher, you can give it a try.
The other way is to run the category publisher
after publishing the features and bundles with a proper category.xml, pointing to the already created metadata repository.

Re: [p2-dev] How to add a new feature to an existing repository?

Hello Shenol,
I'm running a PDE headless build and want to publish the build result. I tried to add the following ant task to my build and it did publish the build result. But the problem is that the features are publish without a category. I manually updated the site.xml and created the category for the new features, but I didn't see the newly added category when I tried to install from the repository.

<p2.publish.featuresAndBundles
metadataRepository="file:/X:/build/website/tpftoolkit/nls36"
artifactRepository="file:/X:/build/website/tpftoolkit/nls36"
publishArtifacts="true"
compress="true"
append="true"
source="${buildDirectory}/buildRepo"/>


Also looked at the headless Category Publisher, but couldn't figure out how to define the source directory yet.

Best Regards

Samuel Wu

Hello Samuel,

How are you building these features ? Publisher applications can be run with an option “-append” which will add the new features to an already existing repository. Some details here:

[p2-dev] How to add a new feature to an existing repository?

Hello there,
Our product has a repository to ship the optional features. We've already shipped a few features and now we want to ship a few more. But when the new features are built, the content.xml and artifacts.xml only contains the newly built features. And the manual merge of the files with the old one is next to impossible. I wonder how to add the new features to the existing repository. Thanks a lot.

Best Regards

Samuel Wu
