So I'm looking to build my own application that uses Equinox. I want to use the P2 system to roll out an update manager for the software, but I can't seem to find any documentation about the API other than brief overviews of P2 concepts on the eclipse site and how they relate to the eclipse IDE.

I don't know if I'm just stupid or something, but I can't find anything about it in the respect of integrating it into my own Equinox application.

Hello abadamcd1,

maybe the help offers what you are looking for:
help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.isv%2Fguide%2Fp2_api_overview.htm


It's a good entrypoint and summary of P2 and contains links to the API Docs.

Kind regards,
M.

The latest Equinox book has text about p2 too.
