yes, as long as there is a touchpoint and/or actions that are capable of
performing the install, and that something publishes the p2 metadata
that includes the install actions to execute.

Don't know what is available here and what is required to install these.

answer though...

There is a description of touchpoint instructions on the wiki.
Also checkout the concept "p2.inf" which is used to augment the regular
publishing of p2 metadata.

Henrik

thanks once again for your time

i am having real trouble getting a grip on p2 and how i can get it to do what i require for server runtime environments and creating server local instances in eclipse

would it be possible for you t o recommend books or web tutorials that gives me a "Starter for Ten" please?

looks like p2 is mentioned in both these books

"OSGi in Action: Creating Modular Applications in Java"
"OSGi and Equinox: Creating Highly Modular Java Systems"

Cheers

Andy
