Hi,

I am trying to understand how to install eclipse using bundle pooling
for Eclipse 4.2.

The trouble is that existing articles concerning bundle pooling are
somewhat outdated (meaning they mention installer app and/or
agent/director apps, but equinox 4.2RC6 download page does not list
these as downloadable artifacts)

How can I set up my bundle-pooling for 4.2 based installations?

More generally - is there some technical documentation somewhere that
would explain all the relevant/possible configuration options and the
underlying mechanics behind the bundle pooling?

One way to use bundle pools is the have a shared p2 area and different configuration areas. In this example, their needs to be a p2 profile that matches the "-target". "-target" will be created with the native launchers and its own configuration area within the common area. For example:

bash$ eclipse/eclipse -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
-noSplash -bundlepool $TARGET -shared $TARGET/p2 \
-destination $TARGET/win32_win32_x86 \
-profile SDKProfile_win32_win32_x86 \
-profileProperties org.eclipse.update.install.features=true \
-p2.os win32 -p2.ws win32 -p2.arch x86 -roaming \
-repository http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.6 \
-installIUs org.eclipse.sdk.ide


There are still some bugs that can be hand-edited out:
