We are in the process of switching from Ganymede to Galileo, and in that process would like to add
p2 support. We have our own build process that creates a perfectly running eclipse tree, that is,
without (p2) update support. If I understand correctly we have to generate p2 metadata and on the p2
wiki http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Publisher found the following headless application call to
do this:
java -jar eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.200.v200905 20.jar -application
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher -metadataRepository file:/loc/p2
-artifactRepository file:/loc/p2 -source eclipse -configs gtk.linux.x86 -compress -publishArtifacts

In this case the command is run from the directory containing the 'eclipse' directory. Unfortunately
the application exits with exit code 13 but without generating any kind of error message? So if
someone sees the obvious we're doing wrong please let us know.

Regards,
Wieant

I've made some progress, first found out to set -Dosgi.debug=.debug, which showed
the configuration area for the eclipse I'm trying to generate p2 metadata for, and in
its 'config' subdirectory a .log file was generated with the actual error message:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Application
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher " could not be found in the registry.
To be continued...

While debugging an application, you can add a -consoleLog to the arguments and it will print out any errors to the console.

Also, are you running against the full eclipse SDK (which works) or against your RCP app that was exported in an eclipse directory (which won't work)?

I ran your command against a 3.5 install and it worked. You need to run it from your 3.5 install and use your RCP app as your source directory

I ran it against our Eclipse product, problem was that that didn't contain all the required p2 stuff
yet. After adding that the command seems to work correctly. Thanks also for the -consoleLog hint.
