Hi, I'm trying to create composite update site to combine several internal update sites (each updated often via continuous integration builds) into a single, easier to use, update site.|
This works well, however, when one of the underlying update sites changes, p2 does not seem to get the updated information for these new IU versions until I restart the application. Even if I rebuild the composite update site and the timestamp is updated, no changes will be found until restart. I can also remove/readd the repository in the application and no new updates will be found. However, for non-composite update sites, the refresh works fine without a restart.
This is problematic as this is a server application which checks for updates on start. Therefore a restart is necessary to even *check* for updates.
I'm using p2 from Eclipse 3.6 and accessing the repositories using the IArtifactRepositoryManager and IMetadataRepositoryManager services to get current IU's/refresh, etc. However, I've noticed the same behavior when pointing Eclipse 3.6 at my composite update site (underlying updates not found until restart even using 'refresh').
Is this caching behavior of composite update sites expected?
Is there a workaround to clear out p2's cache for these repositories so they can be refreshed without restart? Or perhaps something I'm doing wrong generating or refreshing the composite update sites?
