Re: [p2-dev] Can p2 director be used to update a installed feature?

Hi Samuel,

The director will perform an update if you use options to both uninstall and install the same feature, i.e. -u x.y.z -i x.y.z

Bonjour Samuel,

Interesting; we are trying to do the same thing.

You should look/follow Bug 279659; there’s a patch that has been contributed (thanks to Katya Todorova for the contribution!) which is providing an updateIU option to the director application. (I’ve not tested it yet)

The Bug also contains good discussions on this requirement.

[p2-dev] Can p2 director be used to update a installed feature?

I have a feature com.abc.main.feaature installed in Eclipse SDK 3.6.2. I'm trying to update it to from the command line with the p2 director.

eclipse.exe -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -repository file:/D:/temp/eclipse-SDK-3.6.2/eclipse/workspace/Update/ -installIU com.abc.main.feaature.feature.group

I got the error message in the configuration directory, saying that Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency. Only one of the feature com.abc.main.feaature can be installed. Is there another application which can update the installed feature?
