Helios was released in June last year. Since then, there's been an SR1 and SR2 service release. Each of those three
releases is a complete and coherent repository created by the b3 aggregator. The helios repository that is available at
this URL however:
is a composite repository that contains all three releases and that has some disadvantages. It's a) not coherent, b)
takes 3 times as long to download, and c) contains a lot of old stuff that you most likely don't want. The repository
XML (available as the one and only file that you get by appending /compositeContent.jar to the URL), looks like this:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<repository name='Helios Milestone Repository'
type='org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.metadata.repository.Co mpositeMetadataRepository' version='1.0.0'>
<property name='p2.compressed' value='true'/>
<property name='p2.timestamp' value='1277295885098'/>
The thing to pay attention to are the child elements. They are relative to the composite URL which means that the
smaller and coherent SR2 repository can be found at:
The same apply to http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.6
