Hi,

I am not able to find the download URL for the p2 Installer.

The wiki reads like the following,

Get the installer for your platform from the equinox download page. The installer zips are listed under the Provisioning section, once you select your version.
Unzip the installer anywhere on your local disk, eg., /opt/eclipse
Run the p2 installer executable, eg., /opt/eclipse/p2installer

But it ain't working. From where can i download p2 installer?

The wiki says, we can install eclipse via p2, then why the install guide of eclipse doesn't have it contained?

Regards,
Aravind

The p2 installer with UI was considered to be an example. Not sure if it
is maintained and made available in later releases. It never received
much love, and was often broken...

It should be quite easy to write your own - basically UI for what the
director command line app does.

Thanks Henrik for your reply.

I was taken away by the installation instructions provided in the iwiki.

Does that mean, we can't achieve the bundle pooling provided by p2?
(Sharing common plug-ins across multiple installations)

The Installer with the UI is just a very thin wrapper around the
functionality provided by p2. The command line director application
exposes about the same capabilities.

Historically the installer has not been used that much, and you really
have to understand what and how it does things to configure it
correctly, so you get the benefits you are after and no unpleasant
surprises.

That is all I am saying.

Hi Henrik,

I got the installer now and did a successful installation using it.
