p2 update site binary folder [message #657943] Fri, 04 March 2011 17:01 Go to next message

Hello,

I am having problem with using update site for a product. Update site file tree looks like this:

artifacts.jar
binary [folder]
content.jar
features
plugins

Binary folder contains product executables for different platforms, but they don't have .jar extensions at the end and I guess treated as directories. As a result, when I try to update I get message that file could not be found.

Here is the screenshot of binary directory http://i.imgur.com/jKvDm.png

Thanks for your help,
Alex

NOt sure how you came to that conclusion. The binary folder contains opaque files that are handles by p2. They shouldn't
have any extensions and they are not treated as folders.

So why am I getting 404 on these files during update? And what does "opaque files that are handles by p2" mean?

thanks,
Alex

This is the error I am getting

On Windows message looks a bit different with FileNotFoundException.

It means that those files are managed internally by p2 and shouldn't be
accessed directly. If you get 404's during update, then I guess your p2
repository is corrupted somehow.

Hi thomas, thanks for your reply. Alex helped me post this question.

I think the p2 repository itself is fine because i can use it as a local update site. It is only when it's used on a server that caused the referred connection problem. We have eliminated server or platform problems.

What other possibilities are there?

Thanks again.

I don't know. A 404 means that your server claims that the file isn't
found. p2 will try to access the file using it's full name so it will
not need browse privileges. Do you get a 404 in a browser too if you try
and access the file from there?

Some success in this area.

We have our update site serving from apache on Windows. I copied update site to apache on linux and update works without a problem. Apparently it's an issue with the way files are being served by the server.

Thanks Thomas for your help
