Hi,

I'm playing with EPP these days to build a custom package. It generally
works, however I can't get the update manager to work. From Help ->
Software Updates I get the following message:

Cannot launch the update UI. The installation has not been configured
property for software updates.

This seems true since the built package doesn't contains the p2 and
dropins folders, nor it contains the p2-related folders under the
configuration folder.

My guess is that I'm not using the correct root files, but since the
configuration files points to a local folder, I don't know how to get
the correct files. Also I think that there are some files that needs to
be generated rather than copied, but doesn't seems that there is a way
to generate these files.

What am I missing ?

Regards,
Marco.

So you are able to start and to run the created package? That doesn't sound
too bad.

That is interesting - there seem to be something missing.

Maybe... are you using the 'root' files from the Eclipse Platform team? Such
as the platform download like this one for RC4? E.g. the file
eclipse-platform-3.4RC4-win32.zip from
http://ganymede-mirror1.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/ S-3.4RC4-200806091311/download.php?dropFile=eclipse-platform -3.4RC4-win32.zip

I suggest opening a bug and attaching the EPP configuration file to it. Then
we can have a look...

Yes, the created package works well, except for the update manager.

Yes, I tried with that file, however, I get errors about what looks like
conflicting packages, such as:

Bundle org.eclipse.help_3.3.100.v20080515 failed to resolve.:
Another singleton version selected: org.eclipse.help_3.3.100.v20080610

I guess that the features and plugins contained in the zipped file are
conflicting with the plugins downloaded from the repository.

After removing the features and plugins folders from the zipped file,
the package build works well, however the product doesn't activate the
additional features (the features that were not included with the root
files package). I guess that the p2 files are not updated with the
additional features and the original set was unchanged, making the
product unusable.

Well, since eclipse 3.4 is released today, I'll wait a bit and try to
build a package with the stable 3.4 files, just is case.

Anyway, you can confirm that the EPP build should create all required
files automatically ? There isn't any additional step to do, right ?

Regards,
Marco.

I have rebuilt the package with the release and all works well now.

There is still a strange thing: the first time the application is
started the about dialog shows only the SDK feature icon (only one
icon), then after restarting the about dialog shows all installed
feature icons. Maybe this belongs to p2, not strictly EPP related.

Regards,
Marco.
