Hi,

I am currently trying to create several target platforms using Buckminster. To save some bandwidth, I decided to set up a local mirror of the relevant update sites I need for these target platforms, in order to make the creation process more efficient. I am trying to use the Buckminster Aggregator feature to create the aggregated mirror.

So far so good.

My problem is that using the Buckminster Aggregator only allows to aggregate for the "common" configurations (win32, linux, macosx), while there is no way to create configurations for other systems (such as solaris).

I personally would not need any configurations besides the "common" ones mentioned above. However, when I try to materialize a p2 target platform using Buckminster, I can only use wildcards as target settings as opposed to a list of valid configurations. Because of this, Bucky also tries to materialize the platform for all "exotic" configurations. Of course it fails, as there are no platform specific fragments on my aggregated mirror for these "exotic" configs.

I tried out both the Buckminster Aggregator as well as the B3 Aggregator, as I read that the Helios release site is built using the aggregation feature. I already found the *.build files for the Helios release site, however I cannot figure out how "exotic" configs come into play here.

Can anyone give me a hint, please?

Cheers,
Joe

Hi Johannes,
This sounds like an unnecessary limitation. Can you please file a bugzilla? Use Modeling / EMFT.b3.

Thanks,
Thomas Hallgren

Hi Thomas,

thanks for the quick reply. I reported the issue here:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=307882

Is there a work-around besides using the p2.mirror ant task to create individual mirrors of all the update sites I would need? I still cannot understand how the Helios release site was built using the B3 Aggregator.

Cheers,
Johannes
