Helios: Features missing from our update site [message #514196] Fri, 12 February 2010 19:01 Go to next message

An update site we built under Galileo (3.5) appears like this in Help, Install New Software, Available Software, (with [x] Group items by category):
[ ] Our category
[ ] Feature A
[ ] Feature B
[ ] Feature C

The same exact site accessed (even after rebuild) under Helios (3.6M5) appears like this:
[ ] Our category
[ ] Feature B

How do we reveal our hidden Features again?

We build our update site by first building separate feature repositories, then merging them with calls to org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.repository.mirrorApplication and org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.mirrorApplication . The result is a site composed of:

root
features
plugins
artifacts.jar
content.jar

without site.xml. Any help is appreciated.

I was able to reveal our features by:
1) Rebuilding each repository without any category (site.xml) file
2) Remerging using mirrorApplication
3) Setting category via category.xml file and CategoryPublisher application.

This works well, correctly categorizing multiple features under one category and even multiple revisions of the same feature under that same category. Only problem is that CategoryPublisher fails about 20% of the time with NPE. I direct output to a log file and parse for the phrase "Generation completed with success" to confirm success.

Still interested in why Helios behaves differently than Galileo, and resolution of CategoryPublisher fault.
