is it possible to point the director application against a "old" update
site (remote or local) I have a plugin that has not been built with
p2metadata, I am curious what I could do to workaround this with the
need to install the plugin via commandline and Eclipse 3.4/5

Maybe I am not aware of the correct parameters to pass, anyone would
input would be great...thanks in advance


\eclipsec.exe -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -repository
http://hostname/UpdateSite -installIU com.xxx.plugin.xxx -destination
C:\scripting\eclipse\

Installing com.xxx.plugin.xxx.
An error occurred during the
org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.engine.phases.Ch eckTrust phase.
session context was:(profile=epp.package.jee,
phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.engine.pha ses.CheckTrust,
operand=null --> [R]com.xxx.plugin.xxx, action=).

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
Application failed, log file location:
C:\scripting\eclipse\configuration\1265288853765.log


Thanks

Wouldn't you have to use your feature (as that's what old update sites
are based on).

I would try com.example.my.feature and if that doesn't work,
com.example.my.feature.feature.group (p2 often appends .feature.group to
regular eclipse feature IDs)
