Equinox p2 Admin UI: missing features folder [message #550170] Thu, 29 July 2010 12:54 Go to next message

Hi everyone,

I have got a weird problem regarding the Equinox p2 Admin UI tool. In
the 'provisioning' perspective, I created a new profile, where I
specified the id, install folder, bundle pool location (same location as
the install folder) and some other info [1].

Then I installed features from update sites I had in the 'Metadata
Repositories' view. So far so good. At the end I could start the
installed RCP app from the install location.

The only weird thing is that, although I can start the app, I don't have
a 'features' folder in the install location. Within the app, under
'Help' > 'About Eclipse SDK' > 'Installation Details', the 'Features'
tab is empty while the 'Plugins' tab is normally populated.

My question: am I not supposed to get also a features folder? Why are
the features not properly installed? Am I missing something?

The version of Eclipse I use is:
- Eclipse SDK 3.5.2
- Equinox p2 SDK 3.5.1.R35x_v20090811

Thanks in advance.
Cheers,

Patrick

The profile needs to have the property
org.eclipse.update.install.features=true

Thank you for your answer. This works!


@all

I am wondering if this approach is documented somewhere. Building, a
runnable target platform (the runnable requirement is needed e.g. when
using the PDE build within maven) gets then complicated.

For that we need to set the bundle pool location to the same path as the
installation path (so far so good), plus the property mentioned by
Andrew under 'Environments' when creating the profile (cannot be changed
afterwards).

Cheers,
Patrick
