Hi,

I just wrote a tutorial about how to use the Equinox p2 provisioning
system for updating Eclipse RCP applications:

Thought you might be interested in this and would be glad to hear your
comments/feedback.

Greetings,

Ralf

Nice tutorial! Certainly a good addition to the other ones that are
around. I'm still wondering though about the permission problem i have
pointed out here:

news://news.eclipse.org:119/hamnvt$s5$1@build.eclipse.org

It's funny enough that all RCP example apps around (for example the MP3
Manager from Kai Tödter) seem to suffer from this problem and yet nobody
seems to acknowledge it. Probably too many people are still working on
Windows XP while the problem only happens on Vista and Windows 7. I'd be
happy to write a bugzilla report if there was just somebody who
confirmed the problem.

Hm, the usenet link didn't work for me. Here is the weblink:

http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=155697& amp;start=0

By the way, if you intend to test the problem i am talking about, for
example, with the MP3 Manager, don't be fooled by running the software
by launching it from the installer directly. The installer grabs the
necessary priviliges from this UAC system when it is executed and the
process launched from the installer still owns these priviliges. With
other words, terminate the installer first and then execute the program
with normal user priviliges.

Thank you for this nice tutorial!
Unfortunately I can not follow you instructions. I did everything just like you did, but my exportet product does not contain any p2 or dropins folder as you showed here:
http://www.ralfebert.de/blog/eclipsercp/p2_updates_tutorial/ exported_files.png

I'm using Eclipse :3.5.1.R35x_v20090811-7Q7bAIBPVUBVbKSMTyyfpOteKTem7_g2paS1__ z-Rrmf4

I do not want to use the p2 UI! I just want a folder where I can drop plugins into using the filesystem. (Also using the UI is an option, its just not the most important point for me.)

Basicly my needs are well described here:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Getting_Started#Dropins
Watched Directory does bring it to an point Smile

I can'nt find what plug-ins or extensionpoint / preferences settings are needed to get this to run. Do you have any hint?

Thanks,
Jan
