director -uninstallIU not working properly [message #685114] Thu, 16 June 2011 20:49 Go to next message

I'm trying to use the director to remove junit plugins from my
installation, the command I'm using is

<path-to-director>/director -uninstallIU org.junit -destination
`pwd`/linux_gtk_x86_3.6 -profile SDKProfile -purgeHistory

I'm seeing the output
Uninstalling org.junit 4.8.1.v4_8_1_v20100427-1100.
Uninstalling org.junit 3.8.2.v3_8_2_v20100427-1100.
Operation completed in 4358 ms.

but the plugins are still there. <install>/artifacts.xml still have the
plugins, and also still have them.

Am I doing something wrong?

I know that this may break some dependencies, but that is OK for now. No
JUnit functionality is needed by my users.

Any help is appreciated.

Because those plugins are part of the SDK product/JDT feature, you can't uninstall them separately. p2 won't allow you to break dependencies like that (it's a fundamental part of its design). I'm not even sure you can feature.patch JDT and remove them as a dependency.

I was pretty sure there was a bug open about the fact it looks like it succeeded (but it doesn't). But I cannot find it.
