Hello,

I have a RCP application (based on 3.5) that use the "Headless Updating on Startup" as described in http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Adding_Self-Update_to_an_ RCP_Application#Headless_Updating_on_Startup

Everything works, but after a succesful update I would like to remove the old plugins files (located in the plugins directory of my RCP installation).
Do you know how to acheive this ? what can I change in the P2Util class?

Thanks
Yann.

Hi Yann,

The easiest way which every one probably knows is through P2 UI.

But if you want to do programatically before lauching app in P2Util,

the P2 Api lets you go through all the installable units,

if you find more than one IU with same name, match version number and uninstall all IU's with less version numbers.
