Re: [p2-dev] A typical use-case

I uploaded Java WebStart app to github, so you maybe able to launch it
directory from the browser (or run javaws from command line). See
project page from more info

I'm very interested to look into this repository analysis tool and would appreciate to get a binary trial. I know B3 Aggregator (and I like it), but I'm missing some search related features like "where used".
Would be great if someone can point me to a similar tool for analyzing relations coded in feature.xml and plugin-manifests.

A shameless self-promotion :-) I have a tool that lets you browse p2
repositories, see composite structures, IU dependency tree/list, etc. I
can provide prebuilt binaries if anyone is interested (the sources are
at github already).

Another way to reduce the pain would be to introduce smarter
protocols that would enable p2 queries to be sent and evaluated on a
server rather than copying the "database" in its entirety to the client.

I don't think that downloading the database is a bad idea. Once the database is local, all future queries can happen local. There seems to be an issue with too many database downloads, though. Sometimes p2 does too many downloads for the same database. I whish the caching would be a bit more agressive. Another option might be to ship software packages pre-loaded with local databases.

The simple solution that is feasible short-term is to maintain separate repositories.

I tend to agree. Even for my target platform definitions I tend to be more specific and avoid composites. Luckily, I have shell access and can browse the download servers to find the one I want. But other users just get the 404/403 and will never find out if a repo is a composite or not. I wonder if directory browsing should be enabled for download servers.
